Sean de Burca is a percussive acoustic guitarist from Kent, England, who utilises every part of the guitar and various effects pedals to create soaring, upbeat instrumental songs with guitar body percussion and fretboard tapping. By 2014, having played the guitar for just 7 years, he was named as one of the top 30 acoustic guitarists under the age of 30 worldwide by Acoustic Guitar Magazine (USA), as well as being featured as Acoustic Magazine’s (UK) ‘Next Big Thing’.
“From harmonics to percussive slapping to agile fretboard dancing, this southpaw knows a thing or two about getting the most sound possible out of his guitar. On his three full-length releases on Bandcamp, the self-taught guitarist shows he isn’t afraid of taking risks.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine 2014
Sean has performed in Canada, America and across the UK, this includes performances supporting Antoine Dufour at the Vancouver Planetarium and Ken Bonfield’s Artistry of the Guitar showcase in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Sean’s technical playing has earned him performances at UK Tech-Metal Festival for 3 consecutive years (2014-2016) plus hosting masterclasses. As an endorsee for Faith Guitars, D’Addario Strings, GruvGear and K&K Pickups, Sean has also provided booth demonstrations at various guitar shows across the UK.
