Andrew Blanch is recognised as one of Australia’s leading young classical guitarists. He made his solo recital debut at the Sydney Opera House in 2017 to critical acclaim and to date his career has taken him around the world. His debut CD Spanish Guitar Music “secured this young musician’s place amongst a glittering Australian classical guitar constellation” (Limelight Magazine).
