Sean de Burca is a percussive acoustic guitarist from Kent, England, UK. Although he has only been playing guitar for just 8 years, he has already been named as one of the greatest acoustic guitarists under the age of 30 worldwide by Acoustic Guitar Magazine: Sean was selected alongside Ed Sheeran, Newton Faulkner and more in Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s ’30 Under 30′ feature, a selection of 30 of the greatest acoustic guitarists under the age of 30. Sean has also been featured as Acoustic Magazine’s ‘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

During 2014, Sean’s music was welcomed into the metal music scene. He performed and held a masterclass as the United Kingdom Tech-Metal Fest. Sean and Jon Gomm were the only acoustic acts at the festival. Sean has also performed at Brighton’s MammothFest, opening for headliners, Martyr Defiled. Sean has returned to perform at UK Tech-Metal Fest for the 2015 and 2016 festivals.

Sean performs on average 80 to 100 solo shows a year, this has included shows in America, a performance at the prestigious London Acoustic Guitar Show, Brighton’s Great Escape Festival, support slots for U.S guitar innovators Trevor Gordon Hall and Craig D’Andrea, and more festivals and showcases across England. He has even performed to audiences including Jeff Beck and Roger Daltrey.
