Anton Goudsmit

With his ardent and passionate guitar playing the versatile and innovating Anton Goudsmit developed into a musical Chameleon without losing his recognizable and characteristic style. His miscellaneous compositions are the base of poetic improvisations and flashy power performances.

He graduated cum laude at the Amsterdam Music Conservatory in 1995 and today he can be reckoned as one of the most influential guitarists of the Netherlands.
