I organised as a surprise Valentine’s lunch for my girlfriend and Michael’s guitar performance on Zoom (which was connected to our TV) created the perfect ambiance for our lunch. Michael played a selection of tunes from different genres, some of them of his own composition. Michael is a talented guitarist who knows his music and introduced every tune, adding a nice personal touch to his performance. Michael was also very easy to interact with and I would highly recommended him if you are looking to surprise your beloved during these lockdown times!

Stupendous performance by Michael Watts! Professionally perfect. I first heard him in Dublin, not long after he was awarded U.K. Young Guitarist of the Year. We were all enthralled, but this was something else, a great human and, to me, a mighty spiritual experience. Thank you, Michael; and you were smiling and relaxed all through. At one with all of your audience. It was a privilege to see a master at work. Keep on going, Michael, and continue to astound with your progress.

Michael's relaxed manner suited such an intimate performance. Beautiful music; obvious mastery of the instrument; and the right amount of banter between pieces. I enjoyed it so much that I spent the rest of the evening listening to his album on Tidal.

Michaels relaxed style and banter generates a great atmosphere in which to listen to some very skilful playing. A mixture of his original tracks and his impression of well known pieces adds to the interest. An excellent concert thank you.

Beautiful music, including many of his own compositions and some fine cover versions as well. A really lovely evening, and a gentle way of getting together with old friends during lockdown. Very highly recommended.
