Dickon McCarthy is an Acoustic Solo Artist, based in Cambridge, U.K.

With music ranging from quite understated and intricate to more complex and layered in sound. Dickon pushes himself technically, always exploring new ways to create. Percussion, tapping and finger-style are a few of the methods he implements.
