Declan Zapala entertains passers by at Hop Farm 2012

Handsomely bearded with intricate fingering (behave), Declan Zapala is a little different from your average busker.

Holding his guitar in a classy upright  stance (excellent posture), Zapala rumbles out a mix of flamenco and classical that blends effortlessly. Spiderlike fingers tapdance on the fretboard while some percussive elements add depth.

There are many guitarists adding tapping elements to their playing, but seeing it with a highly trained classical twist is a refreshing change and passers by appreciate it. Well worth the change that people were dropping at his feet.
