Justin Bernasconi

Performed in Sofar Melbourne

Justin Bernasconi is a rarity among guitarists and songwriters. Straddling styles and sounds from the Delta Blues, Appalachian Bluegrass, English Folk and all stops in between, his highly original tunes, are infused with exciting and soulful guitar playing. Raised in the small Cambridgeshire village of Warboys - famed for witches and WW2 Lancaster Bombers - Bernasconi was never short of a story to tell. In 2014, he released his solo debut album ‘Winter Pick’, demonstrating his love of British and American folk guitar styles, and featuring stories from his childhood in Cambridgeshire. Produced by ARIA award-winning Jeff Lang, the album was described by Australian Guitar Magazine as “a dexterous display of picking that does a stellar job of treading the fine line between guitar showboating and tasteful melodies”.
