In May 2017, Guitarras ao Alto secured the absolute debut of the American musician Steve Gunn in Alentejo, in what was the last concert of his solo European tour. A magical night of voice and guitar in Évora, at SOIR-Jaa, organized in partnership with Pointlist, which also featured Portuguese musicians Éme and Calcutá.
Before starting an intense solo career, which features more than a dozen albums, including numerous collaborations, Steve Gunn was a guitarist in Kurt Vile’s band “The Violators”. His three most recent band format albums (“Time Off”, “Way Out Weather” and “Eyes on the Lines”) confirm him as a top composer, who never forgets his influences and references including Michael Chapman, La Monte Young, John Fahey, Jack Rose, Robbie Basho, Sandy Bull, among many other musicians and musical genres.
