Seabuckthorn is the solo project of English acoustic guitarist & multi-instrumentalist Andy Cartwright who explores alternative terrains on six to twelve strings. Cartwright uses the techniques of finger picking & bowing combined with various open tunings to form a mixture of approaches, often with minimal layered accompaniments, falling into the experimental and ambient genres. Sometimes quietly atmospheric, often powerfully expressive.

Having grown up in Oxfordshire and lived in the cities of London, Paris & Bristol, Cartwright now resides in the southern Alps where the mountainous landscapes offer enough inspiration to produce & record music. 

Earlier recordings have been released on Dead Pilot (UK),
Bookmaker Records (FR)Sonido Polifonico (UK), Thesis Project (US) & Lost Tribe Sound (US). He has been actively touring internationally for several years performing in festivals throughout Europe.
