Graeme Taylor (born 2 February 1954, in Stockwell, South-West London) is a British electric guitarist.

Taylor played lead guitar with 1970s medieval/rock band Gryphon,[1] and leading folk rock bands including the Albion Band and Home Service. With Gryphon he had 4 best-selling LPs, and toured the U.S.A., supporting Yes at Madison Square Gardens, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra at the Houston Astrodome.

Taylor played a major role in the creation and performance of the music for The Mysteries at the National Theatre in 1977 a production - to a text adapted by the poet Tony Harrison - that was revived in 1999, with Taylor in the role of Musical Director, Arranger and Composer of additional music.

Having spent many years playing guitars in the pit orchestras of many West End musicals, Taylor is now a member of the touring bands for both John Tams and Rolf Harris, and runs his own studio in South London.

Graeme is temporarily laid up having broken his leg in a fall at the NFF festival on 6 July.
