“Having initially studied classical guitar at Napier University, Gordon Ferries went on to study at the RSAMD where he specialised in lute and early guitar music. He has now established himself as one of the UK's leading exponents of the baroque guitar. Gordon has worked for both television and radio: arranging and performing music for Radio 4; featuring on 'Scotland's Music' with Concerto Caledonia, and for BBC 2 television. He has performed in venues and festivals across the UK both as a soloist and in ensemble and has appeared with The Scottish Ensemble, The Scottish Early Music Consort and the Edinburgh Quartet, amongst others. Gordon directs his own group, Symphonie des Plaisir.
Gordon has been awarded two grants from the Scottish Arts Council towards study at the Bibliotheque Nationale de Paris, reasearching the baroque guitar; the fruits of which appear on his recordings. He lectures in lute and guitar at Napier University in Edinburgh, and is involved in teaching young people in many musical styles.“
