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.
