Weekend Music Series -Fingerstyle Guitar with Jon Sousa
Surprisingly inspired by the guitar playing of Slash, Jon Sousa began rocking on the guitar at age of 11. His musical journey soon took him to the extremes of rock and metal, but not before a radical left turn into the world of electronic dance music production. After moving to Colorado in 2003, Jon fell deeply in love with Traditional Irish music and solo fingerstyle guitar. Jon's passion and love for music have taken him all over the world from the beautiful countryside of France, studying with master fingerstyle guitar player Pierre Bensusan to Senegal, West Africa, studying sabar drumming and eventually deciding to move to Ireland in 2008 where he refined his skills in interpreting Irish music. A superb acoustic concert to mark the beginning of our 2013 Weekend Music Series.
