This tour features three guitar players of very different genres – Douglas Blair, Pepe Ahlqvist and Jartse Tuominen – each representing their own unique style. After their individual performances, they will hit the stage together for an unforgettable jam session at the end of the night. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the GTR-Tour!

Douglas Blair (US) is best known as the guitarist of the heavy metal band W.A.S.P. He has also invented his own innovative instrument and teaches young musicians at the Turku Rock Academy. During his career, he has performed thousands of gigs at venues ranging from intimate clubs to huge arenas, and has collaborated with fellow musicians around the world.

The Finnish bluesman Pepe Ahlqvist is a renowned musician both on a domestic and on an international level. He has recently celebrated his 50th music anniversary, and throughout the years, he has performed together with many other legendary blues artists. His successful records and his career with more than 6000 performed concerts have given Pepe Ahlqvist’s music well-deserved recognition in the global blues scene.

As the host of the evening and founder of the GTR-tour, guitarist Jartse Tuominen will also rock the stage. During his impressive career, he has played together with artists such as Augie Meyers, Rusty Wier, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers and Jackson Browne.

His album ‘Untold Stories’ has gained worldwide success: “Jartse Tuominen has created a new sound and genre that fills the gap between jazz and rock”-JAZZ-IZ Magazine USA
