GARY POTTER enjoys enormous popularity both as a jazz and country guitarist not only throughout the UK but also in Europe, the USA and Australia. Entirely self-taught, he started to play guitar at the age of eleven, appearing professionally in country bands when only twelve. Gary’s path towards jazz

started when a friend gave him a recording by the legendary

Django Reinhardt, which had an immediate impact on him.

From then on jazz has been his life.

Gary, whose musical experience is extensive and covers jazz, country, classical, pop, funk and blues, is a virtuoso in country fingerpicking and has been voted Best Country Guitarist on three occasions. His unique approach to fingerstyle followed a visit to the legendary Segovia when Gary was fifteen.


Gary Potter is a melodic, lyrical and imaginative guitarist with a perfect rhythmic sense. His renowned versatility owes much to his major influences, including Django Reinhardt, Bireli Lagrene, Charlie Parker and Wes Montgomery, yet his truly incredible technique and flair ensures he has an identity all his own.

The winner of the British Country Music Award and the National Arts Award for Jazz, Gary was the first gypsy guitarist to release a DVD, Hotter Than Hot, which was recorded at the NWJS organized North Wales International Jazz Guitar Festival, whilst his CD, Minor Swing, has been featured extensively on BBC Radio 2.


“He's brilliant” - George Harrison
