Dubbed the ‘acoustic Jimi Hendrix’, guitarist Antonio Forcione will perform songs by Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Michael Jackson.

This highly unique show from the multi award-winning Antonio Forcione, acoustic guitarist, composer and hugely talented musician, is the perfect performance vehicle for this highly charismatic and inventive artist. The concert at the intimate surrounds of Bulls Head will be a showcase of his vibrant and original blend of jazz, Latin, African, flamenco and soul sounds where he will be performing songs by Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Sting as well as original numbers of his own. Antonio 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 he celebrates the unexpected elements in life with delicacy, humor and passion. International touring has brought high critical acclaim far and wide, from Australia and Hong Kong to Russia, the Caribbean, USA and all over Europe, where he has shared the international stage with some of the world’s most accomplished musicians, his albums variously topping UK and international jazz charts.

  • ‘ Forcione boldly goes where no guitarist has gone before and the results are quite spectacular. ’
    (The Stage)
  • ‘ Forcione is mesmerizing… passion, grace and fire. ’
    (The Times)

One of my favourite guitarists and a regular visitor to Jazz FM. He has mastered a range of styles and creates a fusion of sounds from Africa and Europe
