Traditional Christmas songs stir our hearts and memories. The classical guitar and it's deep rich sound can warm and soothe the mind and soul. These Classical Christmas recordings by Michael Griego exceed all expectations for setting the seasonal mood and calming yet stimulating the heart, mind and soul. He has taken classic Christmas seasonal carols and tunes and blended them with his baroque classical and flamenco style guitar playing. Each song builds in complexity and tone yet maintains a simple classic honoring of the season and mood. The experience makes for a very merry Classical Christmas indeed. Michael Griego was born in Los Angeles, California. He studied classical and flamenco guitar under Darryl Denning in the Classical Guitar Program at Occidental College where he received a BA degree in English Literature in 1978. He added an MBA degree from Stanford University in 1982. A true Renaissance man, he has continued to play and advance his craft in public performances over the years while pursuing his varied interests. Michael continues his passion for music and has arranged a variety of classic songs with his unique and exciting blend of classical and flamenco style. We look forward to future releases!
