This Joe Euro Candlelight Concert performance will feature acoustic, instrumental neo-classical finger-style guitar, highlighting many of Euro’s neo-classical original compositions and some actual classical guitar pieces.
Some of his set may also include arrangements of some lite jazz standards, and most likely a few covers, and last but not least, a bit of his ambient space guitar pieces utilizing a digital reverb and a volume pedal, to draw down all that Taj Mahal-like reverb.
This is a sound he enjoyed developing and experimenting with when he moved to this area back in 1979 and would bring his guitar into the bunkers at Fort Flagler.
He also was able to get into the Cistern at Fort Worden, which also inspired him to use this Big Spacey Sound, which is now accessible with some of Euro’s guitarsenal of various guitars and gizmology.
Euro’s day job, The Wine Seller, was founded by him in 1982.
