Ed Wright is a master guitarist and a brilliant entertainer. His repertoire is extensive, and he plays with dazzling virtuosity. He was also charming with the guests, and played any requests. He received many compliments. Very highly recommended.

Ed is fantastic. He had an earlier performance and still agreed to come play for our event. Even after 5 hours of playing yesterday, he still sounded fresh. He is easy-going, inobtrusive and his music is absolutely beautiful. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitar player for their event.

Ed is the consummate professional. His music provided the perfect backdrop for our gathering! He brought his own equipment and was completely self-contained. Out guests thoroughly enjoyed his playing! His repertoire was varied, his technique outstanding. I will definitely book Ed again for future events!

We hired Ed for our Vow renewal ceremony and he was amazing. Showed up in a nice black suit on time and worked out a special request for my wife to walk down the aisle too,fantastick job! The feedback from the guests was all positive, even asked where did I find him? Gigmasters! Thank you Ed for playing so beautifully, it was a great day! So nice to have met you and hope to have the pleasure again someday.
