07 Feb 13-19 February: Alto guitar tour in Sweden

In the mid-1960s two major forces of the Swedish guitar scene met and the result of their collaboration turned out to be something quite special – a completely new guitar model that came to revolutionise the possibilities for classical guitarists.

Over two informative concerts and one master class lecture this February I’ll be telling the story of how guitarist Per-Olof Johnson and guitar builder Georg Bolin developed the alto guitar.

This musical soiree is half concert, half lecture, where an informal and relaxed presentation of the alto guitar is merged together with a variety of musical examples from the renaissance to today.
