An Evening With Alex De Grassi
Alex De Grassi widely acclaimed as a leading innovator and virtuoso of acoustic guitar, fusing a variety of guitar traditions into a highlyorchestrated sound.The Wall Street Journalhas called his playing flawless and Billboard hails his intricate finger-picking technique with an uncanny gift for melodic invention."His early Windham Hill recordings of original music as well as his arrangements of folk, jazz, and world music have influenced a whole generation of young players. His 1978 recording, Turning: Turning Back (cited by Acoustic Guitar magazine among their top ten essential fingerstyle recordings), the subsequent recordings Slow Circle (1979) and Southern Exposure (1984), and his GRAMMY® nominated recording The Water Garden (1998) are considered classics of the genre. His most recent solo recording, Now and Then: Folksongs for the 21st Century, features his contemporary take on traditional folksongs.

Alexs thirty years of international touring include performances at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Montreux Jazz Festival and numerous guitar festivals. He has been a frequent guest teacher at the National Summer Guitar Workshop, the University of Milwaukee, and the Interlochen Institute, and he has given master classes at Berklee School of Music, Crown of the Continent, the Omega Institute, and many other music programs. He has served as the Artist Advisor for the Marin Community Music School, and been a guest speaker at San Franciscos Commonwealth Club. The Alex de Grassi Fingerstyle Guitar Method, published in 2012 (String Letter Publishing), is rapidly emerging as the authoritative method for fingerstyle guitar instruction.

Alex de Grassi is a treasure his technical wizardry as well as his vibrant and poetic music-making make him one of the most distinctive steel-string guitarists performing today. --New York Guitar Festival director David Spelman.
