Having recently released their first album “Native Speaker”, Black Mountain Jazz is delighted to welcome the Stefanos Tsourelis Trio to the theatre at the Melville Centre.
Stefanos is well known for his versatility and ability to move across styles and genres on both the guitar and oud. His musical style incorporates blues, rock, jazz and Mediterranean sounds.
Born in Greece, Stefanos has been playing music from the age of 10. At 17 he was performing professionally as a guitar and oud player in local clubs, theatres and festivals across Greece. In 2005, he moved to London ans studied at the London Guitar Institute/Guitar X.
He was taught and inspired by great artists such as Shaun Baxter, Mike Outram and John Wheatcroft. His main influences include Jimi Hendrix, SRV, John McLaughlin, Pat Metheny, Jeff Beck and Was Montgomery.
In 2008, Stefanos was awarded the prestigious title of ‘Best Guitarist of the Year’.
He frequently performs with top flight musicians – such as Maurizio Minardi, Demi Garcia Sabat, Shirley Smart and Pat Michaels at leading venues, including The Vortex and Pizza Express Soho.
