The festival will take place in downtown Carefree, 10am to 5pm each day. Admission is $3.00 all three days and free for residents of Carefree. Esteban has been playing the guitar since he was eight years old. Self-taught for most of his early years, his talent stunned everyone who heard him play. He attended Carnegie Mellon University and studied with legendary classical guitarist, Andres Segovia, in the 4th floor studio on Avenida Concha Espina in Spain. He began touring in the United States soon after and experienced some of the most memorable times in his life.
Then an accident occurred and, due to a hand injury, Esteban was unable to play the guitar for 10 years. Eventually, through dedication and love of music, he began to again play the guitar he so loved. Since that time, Esteban has topped the billboard charts many times with his numerous albums, videos and DVD's.
He had a full feature article in People Magazine, as well as thousands of accolades from newspapers, magazines and dedicated fans. With each performance he continues to astound crowds all over the nation; touching the hearts of listeners with his sensational sound and expressive music.
