Native of Italy, Francesco was introduced to guitar by his first teacher, who taught him jazz fingerstyle, and to jazz composition and arrangement by Bruno Tommaso and Giancarlo Gazzani. In Dublin since 2000, he has studied with guitarist Mike Nielsen and composer Jane O’Leary at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. In 2003, he was awarded with an “IMRO/Newpark” scholarship to study jazz composition with Irish composer Ronan Guilfoyle, at “Newpark Music Centre”, in Dublin. Francesco has played with the “Royal Irish Academy of Music (RIAM)” Big Band and has collaborated with some of the most respected musicians in the Irish jazz scene. With Patrice Brun on tenor saxophone, Peter Erdei on electric bass guitar and Andy O’Farrel on the drums, the quartet will explore both original compositions and arrangements of jazz standards
