ANTONIO FORCIONE & BAND

Der italienische Musiker gilt mit Recht als einer der charismatischsten und erfindungsreichsten Gitarristen Europas. Einträchtig loben Publikum und Musikkritiker den Gitarren-Entertainer in höchsten Tönen. Sein unorthodoxes Spiel und seine enorme Bühnenpräsenz begeisterte unsere Zuhörer bereits 2011 und 2014.
„Eine aufregende Reise um die Welt mit Leidenschaft und Feuer „– so schrieb „The Times“


To lovers of acoustic guitar virtuosity, award-winning Antonio Forcione is the duke, the devil and the pope, all rolled into one. His band, the Antonio Forcione Quartet (AFQ) has been performing all over the world, wowing audiences at sell-out concerts in festivals in countries as far reaching as the Philippines, Australia, Zimbabwe, Barbados, Jamaica, Brunei, New Zealand, Canary Isles, as well as numerous venues in Europe and the UK and at major festivals including Womad (UK & Sicily), consistently receiving the highest 5 star reviews year after year at the Edinburgh festival.

Quite simply, from Forcione’s guitar to the cello, bass and percussion backing, this show is both a musicianly masterclass and a breathtaking live experience.
