ABOUT ANTONIO FORCIONE 

Antonio Forcione is an artist in every sense of the word, hailed as one of the most charismatic, unconventional guitarists at large in the musical world today. With a host of international awards under his belt, this eclectic composer never ceases to stun his audience on stage, leading him to be referred to as the ‘Jimi Hendrix of the acoustic guitar”.  His solo performances never fail to bring the house down, let alone when he is performing in duo, as a trio, or with his quartet of international musicians.  He breaks the mould of most conventional guitar sounds, be it in the field of jazz, Spanish, African, Brazilian or improvised music, with a ferocious virtuosity, passion and humour.  He has shared the stage and recorded with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians including Charlie Haden, Angelique Kidjo, Trilok Gurtu, Larry Coryell, Diego el Cigala and many more, as well as supporting giants such as Phil Collins, Bobby McFerrin, Zucchero and Van Morrison amongst others.

 

Most recently Antonio has been touring and recording with the amazing singer-songwriter Sarah Jane Morris wowing audiences throughout Europe.  He has also been performing with Spanish flamenco star Arcangel and The Bulgarian Voices choir, touring under the name Estruna.

 

Over the years Antonio has released 20 albums of largely original material and has performed in festivals and theatres from as far as Australia and Indonesia to the USA, Africa, Canada, Caribbean, Turkey, Lebanon and all over Europe, especially in France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the UK. He has performed at numerous charity events and his festival appearances include Womad, Glastonbury, Edinburgh, Melbourne, Koln, Verona, Granada, Hong Kong Arts Festival, Perth International Festival, Singapore Arts Festival, Wellington International Festival, HIFA International Arts Festival in Zimbabwe, Istanbul international Guitar Festival, and the Machoire d’Or in Montreux amongst others.
