A Brief History of the Coolest Instrument in the World

Buy tickets

A Brief History of The Coolest Instrument in the World, devised by Chris Montague, marks the milestones of the electric guitar through 80 years of popular culture, from Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix.

Through a mixture of performance and speech, this show celebrates the great guitarists through the ages and the versatility of the instrument.

One of the UK’s most innovative guitarists and a founder member of Troyka, Chris Montague is widely recognised for his skills as a composer and performer. He’s joined in this concert by Conor Chaplin (bass), Tim Giles (drums), and Michael L Roberts (vocals/piano).

This unique live show also provides the opportunity for amateur guitarists to perform an original composition with Chris and his band on stage at the beginning of the performance.

If you’re a guitarist and you’d like to sign up to be part of this project please visit this website to register your interest and receive further information. There are only 20 places, available on a first come first served basis.

Produced in association with Serious, EFG London Jazz Festival and the Hull Music Hub.

This event is at the ALBEMARLE MUSIC CENTRE. Tickets must be collected from Hull Truck Theatre by 4pm on the day.
