The Acoustic Ninja Trace Bundy will be bringing his guitar licking talents to the Austin ArtWorks Festival stage this August.

Trace was born in Austin and eventually moved to Colorado.

He  first started playing guitar when he was about 11 or 12 years old. Since he could never afford lessons he taught himself, learning from other people’s songs and making up his own music.

After years of playing, he eventually developed his own unique style that confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers.

Trace has independently sold over 70,000 albums on his record label, Honest Ninja Music, and regularly sells-out shows with standing ovations at venues across the USA and around the world, in 21 countries and counting.

Trace was named “Most Promising New Talent” of 2008 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, as well as winning third place in the magazine’s “Best Fingerstyle Guitarist” category the same year.  Check out tracebundy.com to listen to some of his music. Also, be sure to see Trace in person at the Austin ArtWorks Festival August 25 and 26 in the Historic Downtown Power Plant. For more information about the Festival visit austinartworksfestival.org.
