Uppsala International Guitar Competition
Last night I was awarded the second prize, 7000 SEK, at the Uppsala International Guitar Competition.
“Salomon Jakobsson displayed a confident and relaxed stage persona, and showed his creative style as a player and composer. Inspired by the Michael Hedges school of Fingerstyle, he also showed some fine compositional skills in his beautiful piece ‘Sargasso Swells”.”
The winner was Carlotta Dalia, a classical guitar player from Italy.
It’s been a great four days at the Uppsala International Guitar Festival, full of concerts, workshops and clinics with legends such as Leo Brouwer, Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, Marco Pereira and Frank Gambale.
