Summer News

Summer is officially here! - festivals, fairs and much more musica goin' on - It's already been quite a busy month so far, here's what's been happening!

Recent performances

Lately I've been sharing the stage alongside NJ Spanish guitar wizard, Victor Tarassov, at some familiar locales. We've recently been performing at the lovely Iron Plow vineyards located in the lovely farmland area of Columbus, NJ. Great folks and warm hospitality! Here are a couple of snapshots from a few of the recent shows we did here at this wonderful place.

Also, not very long ago - last Saturday I went on my first ever trip to Connecticut (I can now say that I've played in the Tri-State area, lol) to play some Spanish-Mediterranean guitar at the Famous Greek Kitchen (FGK for short) located in the heart of Greenwich, CT. It was quite an interesting experience, I performed a set of Latin guitar originals as well as a couple of my more Mediterranean-style compositions coupled along with a few Greek traditional songs, to which the folks warmly responded...Delicious Greek cuisine (can't go wrong with my favorite, hummus and dolmades). Here's a bit of the action!

Mark Barnwell's "Mandala" WINS - "BEST ACOUSTIC GUITAR ALBUM"

Recently my fellow guitar friend and colleague from overseas, U.K. Spanish guitarist, Mark Barnwell, has won an award for his latest release "Mandala" in the category for "Best Acoustic Guitar Album 2016" by One World Music for their 4th annual OWMR awards. A big congratulations for his marvelous work on this wonderful collaborative effort featuring an eclectic list of great talented musicians from across the globe such as Jim Stubblefield, JP Durand, Liza Carbe (of Incendio fame), Al Marconi, Chris Magrath and award well-deserved!

It was a pleasure also having had a part in the making of this stunning album, a humble thanks to Mark for having me onboard! :-) (please check below for more info on purchasing a copy of "Mandala")
