Le QuecumBar presents:
The legendary ANTONIO FORCIONE up close and personal
Entry Requirements: 18+
Wine and dine cabaret style, whilst Antonio Forcione performs a one man, one night, musical journey, be up close and experience his unique and personal performance, especially for you, with personality plus.
Artistic, intense and formidably inventive, Antonio is a performer of genuine distinction. Ever unpredictable, his is a celebration of the unexpected elements in life, a music of rare delicacy, humour and, not least, passion.
From the first moment Antonio walks on world stages to rapturous applause, a humble smile on his face, guitar in hand, you know you are in the presence of a true artist and are in for an evening with a touch of magic.
And as the first deep, warm, intense notes float through the audience, you can hear a pin drop and feel the sonic spell of his guitar weaving through the room.
As one critic put it “Imagine an Italian hybrid of Michael Hedges, John McLaughlin and Django Rheinhardt ... ferocious, rampaging, controlled power, meticulous precision and clarity of expression ... astonishing musical personality”
He has the ‘hands of a tarantula and the heart of a lion, as a reviewer, so expressively phrased it!

More about Antonio....
Antonio’s numerous awards line the shelf above the piano in his west London home, a far cry from his humble beginnings in a small village in southern Italy from where he worked his way through art school, eventually performing on the streets of London to win the Covent Garden Street Entertainer of the Year Award.
This led straight to a BBC TV appearance and a European tour. He hasn’t looked back since, nor has he ever forgotten his roots.
If you listen closely to his compositions you can feel the nostalgia for the village, the olive groves, the dusty streets and the first loves of a young boy.
Previous albums include collaborations with fellow performers such as Charlie Haden, Trilok Gurtu, Kay Eckhardt, Sabina Sciubba, Claudio Roditi, Rossana Casale...
