Mike Cooper live at the Sonnenstube in Lugano
Sonnenstube in Lugano is pleased to announce a concert by Mike Cooper on Tuesday the 8th of March 2016. For the past 50 years Cooper has been a tireless interational artistic explorer constantly pushing boundaries and collaborating with Bukka White, Howlin Wolf and John Lee Hooker, amongst others. This humble and generous guitarist, pioneer of English folk-blues scene and a fan music from the Pacific, has rejected any categorization. His improvisations pass cheerfully from traditional to experimental folk country, from acoustic blues to electronic reworkings, loop drone to Hawaiian music. At each of his concerts, Cooper masterfully mixes and integrates a plethora of styles. Like Bert Jansch, Keith Rowe or even Bill Orcutt, Mike Cooper has experimental guitar genes and has influenced generations of musicians.
