Matthew Grasso is one of the most innovative guitarists of his generation. Through his groundbreaking transcriptions and distinctive compositional style, Matthew has taken the art of the extended 7-string guitar to new heights. His performances are deeply emotional and mystical. He will perform transcriptions of classical masterworks and original compositions.
