Laura Mackey

Guitar Tutor

Laura started playing guitar from a young age, and graduated from Newpark Music Centre in 2004 with a diploma in Jazz Performance. Through this, she acquired extensive knowledge in music theory, styles and techniques. Since then she’s played in several acts, most notably rock band Boss Volenti, who released their debut album in 2006 and have supported acts such as Ash, Kerbdog and We Are Scientists.

In addition to touring, Laura also ran her own guitar school. She returned to education in 2009 and was awarded a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy before embarking on a PhD. Laura continues to gig on a regular basis with numerous artists, playing both bass and guitar. She’s a member of Whole Lotta Zepp alongside some of Ireland’s finest musicians – a band that carefully recreates Led Zeppelin’s albums live.
