San Diego Guitar Festival: Kiko Loureiro
The San Diego Guitar Festival takes place at various locales around San Diego at the end of April. Kiko Loureiro's performance takes place at SDSU Rhapsody Hall. Loureiro’s part in the festival starts at 11 am on Sunday. “He will talk about the music business and career development,” says Festival artistic director Kevin Hernandez. A live performance follows at 4 pm. featuring both acoustic and electric guitar. “Kiko will be playing guitar and talking between pieces. The audience will be allowed to ask questions.” He may prove a game-changer. “Over the past two years,” Hernandez says, “we have invited strictly classical guitarists to our festival. But if all goes well this year with the introduction of electric guitar, we may bring some other high-caliber electric guitar shredders. I already have a few in mind.”
