Grounds and Sounds welcomes Robert Europe, an up and coming young blues singer/songwriter for a special show on May 9. Robert began playing the cello at age 8 and the guitar at age 14. Growing up Robert played cello with the North Fork Orchestra as well as many school ensembles. But it wasn't until picking up the guitar that Rob knew he wanted to have a career in music. Taking private lessons he developed a love for classic rock and blues. As he showed more promise as a guitarist he eventually recieved a scholarship to study classical guitar at the Crane School of Music, and after a couple of semesters transferred to continue his studies at Five Towns College in order to relocate to NYC. He is currently a senior who is finishing up his BA in Music Business.
As a musician Robert leaves no rocks unturned as he studies all different genres from classical and jazz, to rock and blues in order to be as complete a guitarist as he can.
