Cuntz-Guitars – Petteri Sariola

Sunday 15:30-15:50 in Hall C4


Petteri Sariola, from Finland, is a phenomenon, mostly known for his percussive approach on the acoustic guitar, covering all the sounds of a full band on an acoustic guitar while singing his heart out. No loops, no backing tracks.


Sariola toured around Europe, USA, Japan and reached millions of viewers on YouTube. His latest album “Through The Eyes Of Others” is just released worldwide!


He has been awarded with Nokia Young Talent scholarship, Honorary Prize in the Helsinki Funk Awards, City Magazine Guitarist of the year and as the cover article of Akustik Gitarre.


Sariola shares his time between playing solo acoustic guitar and rocking out with the electric as the frontman of Dead Sirius 3000, a band of pure energy that combines raw rock & roll with killer melody hooks and fusion elements. Beside his solo work he has collaborated with Doug Wimbish (Madonna, Living Colour), Jon Gomm (UK), Mike Dawes (UK), Don Johnson Big Band, Felix Zenger (James Brown, N.E.R.D.), Osmo Ikonen (Sunrise Avenue), just to mention a few.
