Antonio Forcione takes the guitar to new levels of expression and his numerous awards around the world are a testimony to his genius. Be prepared to both laugh and be moved as this acclaimed musician celebrates the unexpected elements in life with delicacy, humour and not least, passion.
If you listen closely to his compositions, described by The Guardian as "one of the great acoustic guitarists", you can feel the nostalgia for his humble beginnings in a small village in southern Italy, the olive groves, the dusty streets and the first loves of a young boy.
Artistic, intense and formidably inventive, Forcione is a performer of genuine distinction. Ever unpredictable, his is a celebration of the unexpected elements in life, a music of rare delicacy, humour and, not least, passion.
