Born into a family of musicians in 1975, Clive has been immersed in an eclectic range of music ever since. He gained a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition & Guitar from Trinity College in 1998 and has toured extensively throughout Europe, the USA and Australia with legends John Renbourn and Tommy Emmanuel.
