Marco Ielpo, born in 1995, is an Italian fingerstyle acoustic guitarist. He began to play classical guitar at the age of nine, and his interest only music grew with age. His first creative endeavors led him to rock music, but gradually he found himself influenced by Tommy Emmanuel, and came to love fingerstyle guitar. While looking to expand his developing sound, he then began to explore the percussive techniques of guitar, inspired by the music of Andy Mckee.
After having attended the High School in Rotonda (Pz), Marco was admitted to the conservatory of Potenza. He continues to hone his musical direction and talents, and is currently working on an album entitled, "Il Viandante Solitario,“ or, "The Lone Wanderer,” which will be available worldwide.
Marco discovered the Engle only recently, but we are excited to see what new directions he takes us in!
