The London Guitar Orchestra (LGO) is a group of friendly classical guitarists that meets once a week in Central London to laugh, learn and play some fantastic ensemble music, under the instruction of its fearless leader and conductor Tom Kerstens. The group has flourished, having added many new faces and hands throughout the years. The music played spans many eras and styles – from Baroque to Romantic to new music, from Vivaldi to Piazzola to Brouwer. We are now pleased to bring the unique sound of the guitar orchestra to a wider audience!

Raleigh - Percolate vocal harmonies, deft instrumentals, and subtle time signature changes are what filter into the superb arrangements of the hallmark Calgary trio Raleigh. With intricate refrains woven by cello, piano, and guitar, Raleigh are as much ear candy as head candy - thoughtful and emotive, restrained, but utterly engaging.

My Glass World - a scathing attack on the Blair years weaves in astrophysics, while a note in a second-hand book sparks a meditation on love and mortality. Welcome to the universe according to Jamie Telford and My Glass World. It’s a haunting, beautiful place to visit and the culmination of a chameleon's career in music. Backed by his experienced Associates, Cameron Graham, and Julian Simmons - they are My Glass World.
