Electrifying master of the acoustic guitar
Named one of the Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitar Players by Guitar Player magazine, Monte Montgomery has been called everything from “guitar god” to the “answer to the Fermi Paradox.” These accomplishments are quite a distance from Birmingham, Ala., where Monte learned to play piano and trumpet before moving to Texas at age 12 to live with his mom, a singer/songwriter who instilled in her son a passion for music and a taste of the life he was destined to lead as he sang and performed with her in Hill Country picking parlors. It was the eventual move to Austin where you could say he earned his musical baccalaureate from that city’s highly competitive music scene, where he earned seven consecutive Austin Music Awards. Today, Monte has a dedicated fan base, critical acclaim and an ever-growing touring circuit in the United States and Europe.
