Calum Graham, Canadian Guitarist
Born in Fort St. John, British Columbia and now based in Victoria, Calum Graham has been making waves in the global music scene for over a decade. He is distinguished by his passionate and emotionally expressive original compositions and is recognized as one of the World’s Top 30 Guitarists under 30 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine.
His live repertoire is a tapestry woven from the Acoustic, Baritone, and Harp Guitar, interweaving original compositions with traces of folk, world, soul, blues, and jazz, all anchored in his virtuosic mastery of fingerstyle technique inspired by Michael Hedges, Don Ross, Andy McKee, and Antoine Dufour.
At the age of 13, Graham learned to play the guitar from his father and commenced his musical odyssey by winning first place at the 2010 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition when he was 17, a feat unprecedented for a teenager in the festival's history. Following this triumph, he was invited to perform at both the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
