About Leonardo Gianola

Specializing in solo, acoustic Country Blues songs from the '20's and '30's.

Leonardo – knows why so many people enjoy songs written during the 1920's and 1930's - the Golden Age of American songwriting. Specializing in solo, acoustic country and delta blues, Leonardo slaps a fresh coat of paint on these rarely heard classics using open tunings on National Reso-Phonic guitars. Leonardo has toured with David "Honeyboy" Edwards, is a Detroit Blues Society artist, and is endorsed by the National Reso-Phonic Guitar Company.

Dupree's Music Bash - Summer Edition
Sun Aug 28, 2022 3:00pm - 7:00pm
206 S Connecticut Ave, Royal Oak, MI 48067, USA

Dupree’s Music Bash - Summer Edition will be promoted (maybe, even a food truck!) and the street will be blocked off from Third Ave. to Fourth Ave. so there will be a lot more shade. “The Ron Jam Band” will be performing: Tony Suhy on bass and vocals, Dave Marcaccio on drums, Dan Hiveley on lead guitar and vocals, and Leonardo on rhythm and slide guitar and vocals. “Woodford Station” will also be performing: Norm McIntyre on lead guitar and vocals, Wayne Wilkins on bass, and John Ciaravino on drums and vocals, and me back on rhythm and slide guitar and vocals, so the music should be pretty much non-stop; there might even be a few special guests sitting in! Feel free to bring a folding chair and a cooler!
