Leading bouzouki, ukelele and guitar player Jon Sanders will bring his unique live show to Donegal this weekend when he appears at An Grianan Hotel in Burt on Saturday night

Jon is renowned for his amazing musicianship and he has just launched his third solo album this summer, featuring brand new compositions that takes the listener on a journey from Mali to Marrakesh and from the Mississippi delta to Macedonia.

Jon is recognised as a virtuoso bouzouki player, tenor ukulele player, drop D and DADGAD guitarist and an internationally acclaimed composer. His composition draws on elements of jazz, gypsy, funk, arabic, latino and Celtic styles, somewhat reminiscent of Sylvain Luc, Pierre Bensusan, Antonio Forcione and James Hill yet instantly different.

He has developed the ngoni uke, a hybrid Mali small ngoni and ukelele, and the guizouki, a bouzouki/guitar fusion instrument. These are the used extensively in his new album, Zoukelele.
