Stricagnoli, born and raised in Italy, is an acoustic guitarist known for his unique style and innovative playing techniques, according to the Kent Arts Commission. His original approach to music has garnered over 100 million views on his music videos and led him to perform at venues across the globe.
Using up to five guitars in the same piece, modified capos, and self-conceived stratagems, Stricagnoli continually leaves his audiences in awe and wondering what’s next for the up-and-coming guitarist. In addition to his musical abilities, he brings an enthusiastic energy to the stage. His music has been featured in countless magazines and TV channels and has grabbed the attention of world-famous artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Walk Off The Earth.
Stricagnoli has been a Spotlight Series audience favorite twice previously as part of the popular International Guitar Night shows. This will be his first solo concert in Kent.
