Billy Watman is an award-winning Anglo-Brazilian classical & fingerstyle guitarist. Currently based in London, he is studying classical guitar performance at the Royal College of Music. Playing since the age of 6, and inspired by the likes of Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel, and Mike Oldfield, he first started to perform live at the Edinburgh Fringe as a busker at the age of 9 and has continued to grace the Royal Mile at the festival every year since. Refusing to be ‘pigeon-holed’ into a specific style, Billy’s live show offers a mesmerizing, genre-defying journey through music, with repertoire spanning Classical, Flamenco, and Pop, through to Electronic Trance and Classic Rock – all on 1 guitar.
