He’s back at last! From being named “Guitarist of the Year”, to winning six “Best Album” awards, to four top-ten Billboard charting albums, to top-ten radio airplay, JOHANNES LINSTEAD has become recognized internationally as one of the best guitarists and composers in the Instrumental and World Music genres. Johannes’ live performances are nothing short of phenomenal. On stage Johannes lets loose a fiesta of Spanish guitar magic! Bursting with tropical sounds, audiences are moved to dance and clap along to his music. In concert, as on his recordings, Johannes and his group create a festive mood with plenty of lightning fast guitar improvisations and spicy percussion solos alive with the driving beats of bongos, congas, timbale and doumbek. Lively Latin and Mediterranean rhythms combined with Johannes’ technical virtuosity leave audiences breathless. This concert is sure to be sold out fast!
