Giuliano Ligabue

Giuliano Ligabue is an Italian singer, guitarist, arranger, composer, producer, and teacher. He is an exceptional interpreter of the Great American Songbook, endowed with a crooner’s voice often compared to those of Michael Bublé and Frank Sinatra and a great mastery of the guitar. He is among the few musicians in Italy to play a seven-string guitar and is appreciated by international artists such as Bucky and John Pizzarelli.

He released several albums, EPs, and singles: “Swing Affair” (2013) with his own drumless trio to honor the musical style of Nat King Cole, “Live at Summertime in Jazz” (2016) recorded live with his Swing Band, “Ci Può Stare” (2019) which includes original songs in Italian language and international hits expertly arranged by Giuliano, “This Happy Rhythm” (Ep 2020) with guest saxophonist Mattia Cigalini, and several singles including “Winter Wonderland” (2020), “When I Fall in Love” (Vocals and 7 Strings Guitar), “The Way You Make Me Feel”, “Strangers In The Night” and “Volare” (2021).

A complete artist capable to offer to the audience an incredible combination of guitar virtuosisms and an extraordinary vocality that allows him to range between many different musical styles. Giuliano Ligabue shared the stage with several renowned musicians on the Italian and international scene, we can mention Mario Zara, Gianni Azzali, Mattia Cigalini, Alessandro Bertozzi, Paolo Tomelleri, Stefano Caniato, Davide Ghidoni, the English Simon Woolf and Richard Pite, the American Frank Griffith and John Colianni (pianist of Lionel Hampton, Mel Tormé, Les Paul, Woody Allen), performing in private events, festivals and clubs in Italy and England.
