After graduating with a Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music, Manus launched his career in the UK to great acclaim, giving recitals and master classes at festivals such as West Dean, Cheltenham Guitar Festival, Bath International Guitar Festival, Beechwood Guitar Course and London International Guitar Festival.

Manus has developed a certain flair and passion for modern techniques and repertoire, with many composers choosing to write new works for him. In 2012 he gave the world premieres of six new pieces, including ‘Hot Club Francais’ by Gary Ryan. His guitars are made by the English luthier, Stephen Hill.

Another future star was sighted in the guitarist Manus Noble…. He steered a sparkling course through the timbre tapestry…. Remarkably self-assured, Noble dispatched everything with refined technique, kissed by poetry” The Times
