Links & Notes:

So young and so talented Ricardo Parreira follows the footsteps of the great Portuguese guitar players such as Carlos Paredes, José Nunes, Francisco Carvalhinho ou Armandinho.

“Nas veias de uma guitarra” is the name of the first album launched in 2007, a tribute to the guitar player Fernando Alvim – who accompanied Carlos Paredes for more than 20 years.
