Description

LionsBayHouseConcerts presents: Diego Figueiredo: Brazilian Jazz Guitar

“Dear Diego: I listened to your CD “Segundas Intenções” and it was a magical moment. When I come to Brazil I would like to play together” (Pat Metheny)

"I have seen and played with many wonderful guitar players like Joe Pass or Baden Powell, but no one is like Diego. His ability and swing are unique" (Flora Purim)

Called by jazz guitar master George Benson, “One of the greatest guitarists I've seen in my whole life", Brazilian jazz guitarist Diego Figueiredo is a new star of the guitar world. He is only 35, and he has already released 23 CDs, 3 DVDs, and played 50+ countries around the world. He has won the Montreux Jazz Competition, VISA Prize and has recorded and performed with big names like Gilberto Gil, João Bosco, Roberto Menescal, Toquinho, Belchior, Fafá de Belém, Angela Maria, Toninho Horta, Larry Coryell, Ken Peplowski, Lewis Nash, John Clayton, Cyrille Aimée, the list is long. Diego’s music is a fusion between Jazz, Bossa nova and Classical music -- he has an unique interpretation, and tons of technique, and plays with a level of passion that will melt any room.

Set in a stunning eco-chic Lions Bay home, seats are limited... so it might be time to share this good idea with a friend. Bring your favorite drink and appetizer to share. This is an evening you will be talking, no bragging about, for years to come and to host him here in Lions Bay as part of our "2019 Winter-2-Spring" Concert Series is an incredible honour. Here's a playlist to get you started!

Lions Bay House Concerts' Winter2Spring Series Lead Sponsor: Thyra McKilligan of Re/Max Masters has been a North Shore resident for over 25 years, but her specialty is Lions Bay.
