“One of the great acoustic guitarists” (The Guardian)

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 ‘Jimie 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 musicans 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.



Peter Tripp Sprague (born October 11, 1955) is an American jazz guitarist, record producer, and audio engineer. He owns SpragueLand Studios and the label SBE Records. He invented a twin-neck guitar with one neck from a classical guitar and one from a steel-string acoustic guitar.

Sprague studied with guitarist Pat Metheny, Boston's Madame Chaloff, and classical guitarist Albin Czak, and has played with Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, David Benoit, and Sergio Mendes. He has produced or played on over 190 recordings. He has published music books, several of which are his transcriptions of his own music, and has transcribed songbooks for Chick Corea.

He composed and performed a guitar concerto with the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra in May 2000 and with the San Diego Symphony in May 2002and performed a number of times at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. He has toured Europe and Japan with vocalist Dianne Reeves.

Sprague has taught at the Musicians Institute, California Institute of the Arts, and the jazz camp of University of California, San Diego.[

In a 1984 review for the Los Angeles Times, jazz critic Leonard Feather called Sprague, "One of the emergent great guitarists." (Quelle-Wikipedia)
