Franco Morone, the Italian poet of acoustic guitar, has mesmerized audiences with his technical prowess and intricate tapestry of sound for nearly 30 years. His unique arrangements and exquisite touch reinvigorate traditional Celtic and Italian melodies. His original compositions have the evocative power to transport the listener to new and unforgettable places. "Your ears will hang on every note as he effortlessly weaves lyrical melodies into a huge finger-style texture," Guitar Player Magazine says. "Morone reminds you how truly boundless the fret board is, and although his chops are monstrous, they never distract from the music.". According with the magazine Acoustic Guitar he has one of most identifiable sounds of anyone playing fingerstyle guitar today. He has just released Back to My Best, a new studio recording of his most popular pieces. http://www.francomorone.com
