Lord of the Strings - Joe Robinson

  • Dana Point Women's Club (map)

Joe Robinson was born in Temagog, New South Wales, Australia. He started playing piano at the age of six, only because he was told his fingers were too small to play the guitar.  At aged ten, he quit piano and began to play the guitar. He outgrew his guitar teacher in less than 12 months, and started to teach himself from the internet.  When he was 11 years old, Joe began touring with different Australian artists, including Tommy Emmanuel, who became his mentor. When Joe Robinson was 13, he won the Australian National Songwriting Competition.

In 2006 he recorded his debut album, titled Birdseed.  At age 17, Robinson won the
Australia's Got Talent grand finale on 1 July 2008, performing a fingerstyle cover of "Classical Gas".  On 19 July 2009, Robinson was awarded the 2009 Senior Grand Champion Performer of the World at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Los Angeles.  

Needless to say, Joe is a very extraordinary talent not to be missed!
