Andrea is making a welcome return to the UK and we’ve snapped him up for what promises to be a very special Chapel Sessions evening. He is a world renowned guitarist playing both classical and contemporary tunes both originally composed and uniquely arranged popular pieces.
Andrea Valeri was born in Pontedera February 27, 1991: from Australia to New Zealand, from Russia to Canada, from Europe to the African continent, Andrea continues to reap a worldwide success since the age of 16 years.
Defined as the “Prince of the Acoustic guitar”, and a new ambassador of acoustic music, Andrea, despite his very young age is now a veteran of many of the biggest stages around the globe. Andrea began his career at 10 studying classical guitar techniques first, to pass through an electric “phase” after that, and finally leading to the acoustic guitar. Here he begins to absorb new techniques such as the Thumbstyle, fingerstyle, flatpicking and many others, so to be able to synthesize them all through his skills on the six strings acoustic guitar. Aged eighteen Andrea was awarded the title of “Italian musical excellence.”
Famous guitarists the world over regard Andrea as one of their finest!
“A Guitar Genius, one of the best Guitar players in the world” John Doan
“The shining light of the guitar world” Michael Fix
“Andrea is probably the most talented guitar player I’ve ever seen. He has created his very own style, and his technique is indescribable! He’s the most friendly and warmest person I’ve ever met, and I’m so proud to call him my friend” Casper Esmann
“I met him in a Festival in Italy, And I was completely blown away by this new fingerpicking sensation” Thomas Leeb
