He’s bald. He’s sexy. Oh, and he’s a guitar virtuoso

Andre Feriante, a classical and flamenco guitar virtuoso, is coming to Tacoma on June 20 for an 8 p.m. concert at Urban Grace.

The man has style. Lots of them, apparently. The press release calls him sensual, contemporary, romantic and will appeal to sophisticates, blue-collar, Latin devotees and jazz hipsters.

Sounds like he’s got everything covered.

Here’s more from the press release:

At Urban Grace, Feriante will salute Summer Solstice with a musical mix of fiery flamenco, classical guitar standards and spoken poetry set to his original compositions. In addition, he will play Irish and Medieval songs on his steel string guitar, then switch to an electric guitar and add his own vocals to numbers, evoking a Latin or Carlos Santana sound. One of the only Northwest guitarists to ever train with the great Andres Segovia in a Madrid master class, Feriante will also perform a special tribute to Segovia and tell little known stories about his famous mentor.

Urban Grace is at 902 Market St., Tacoma. Call 253-272-2184 for more information. Tickets are $22, 800-838-3006 or www.brownpapertickets.com. Feriante’s website is www.andreferiante.com.

And I’m not the only one calling him sexy. It’s official. He was named one of MSN’s "12 Sexy Bald Men"
