Glenn Kristiansen

Guitar repertoire for wedding ceremonies, drinks reception, private parties and more.


Glenn is a solo guitarist covering material from Bach to The Beatles but with an emphasis on music from Spain during the romantic period. His repertoire is equally suited for background as well as for the keen listener. 

Currently he is providing the music in the Seasons restaurant in The Intercontinental Hotel, Dublin every Sunday.

Glenn has had a illustrious career as a guitarist since he moved to Ireland in 1992, and currently is also a member of Camembert Quartet.

In the past his musical journey has included working with The Commitments, The Andrew Strong Band (which took him around the world and included supporting The Rolling Stones as well as a live acoustic performance backing Andrew Strong on MTV’s "Ray Cooks Most Wanted" to name a few). 

He has also been a regular on Irish tv being part of the house band for the chat show "Good Grief Moncrieff" back in 96' as well as numeral occasions on

The Late Late Show, backing Sinead O'Connor and Imelda May amongst others. 

In 2004, NRK, the Norwegian equivalent of RTE, made a television program about his career as a guitarist. That same year he also backed Jamie Fox (Welsh pop singer) at the Royal British Legion Remembrance Day Festival at the Royal Albert Hall, in the presence of the Queen.
