Video of the Month: Joe Robinson

Posted by Brian on 1st June 2011 in Fingerstyle Guitar, Guitar, Guitarists, Video of the Month

This month we have yet another young fingerstyle virtuoso.

Joe Robinson is a young man from Australia who, in 2008, at age 16, won Australia’s Got Talent as an instrumentalist. He has also won the World Championships of Performing Arts in 2009, beating out 75,000 other performers.

Joe grew up in rural Australia and learned much of his skill from watching videos on YouTube. He was especially influenced by fellow Australian guitar guru Tommy Emmanuel. He released his first CD Birdseed in 2005 at the age of fourteen, and few years later released Time Jumping. His songwriting and performance skills continue to improve and a new CD is expected shortly.

If you are in the Greater Toronto Area you can see Joe perform at Deer Park Church (1570 Yonge St.) on Saturday, June 4th at 8 pm. You can get tickets at www.FingerStyleGuitar.ca. (Once again, I have no financial interest in this event.)
