18 May | 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £15
Described as the Prince of the Acoustic Guitar and ambassador of acoustic music, Andrea, despite his young age is now a veteran of many of the biggest stages around the globe.
He began his career aged 10, studying classical guitar techniques and then passing through an electric “phase” before reaching the acoustic guitar. Here he began to absorb new techniques such as the thumbstyle, fingerstyle, flatpicking and many others in order to synthesize them through his skills on the six-string acoustic guitar.
Andrea has been a worldwide success since he was just 16. Aged eighteen he was awarded the title of “Italian musical excellence”. He has released six solo albums: “The Secret of Silence” (2007); “The Trip” (2008); “Maybe” (2010); “Daydream” (2011); “Race Around the World” (2014), and “Mediterraneo” (2016) as well as collaborating and sharing the stage with with some of the most important artists of the guitar and music world today.
