Franco Morone has already established his reputation as a top-notch fingerstyle guitarist way beyond the borders of his Italian homeland, and as a musician who understands how to skillfully combine folk, jazz and blues with his own Mediterranean heritage. This humorous Italian musician, who last came out with a book of music entitled “My Acoustic Blues Guitar”, is now presenting an album focused on Celtic instrumental music.
“Road To Lisdoonvarna” is based on Morone's journey to the beautiful place near the western coast of Ireland. He has now given his experiences, thoughts and feelings a musical life in jigs, traditionals and ballads. The Mediterranean guitar-poet offers us travel souvenirs of a very special kind, with refined phrasings, fascinating harmonic sequences and a rich melodic language that simulates with great authenticity the exuberant lightness, the playful joie de vivre and also the melancholy nature of the Irish. Including the desire to hit the road.
