Paul Holmes Morton | Theorbo


Paul Holmes Morton is native to the state of Pennsylvania, where he had his first music lessons on his father’s banjo and later the cello. After a youthful education of folk music, he went on to study classical guitar under the instruction of Ernesto Tamayo, Marc Teicholz, Sergio Assad, and was later introduced to the theorbo by Richard Savino while studying at San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Perpetually inspired by music as a vehicle to transport oneself across time and culture and class, Paul Holmes believes his music lives in bowtied concert halls, Italian cathedrals, smoky dive folk bars, the mountain towns of Appalachia, and everywhere in between. He is currently completing his studies at the Juilliard School under the instruction of Daniel Swenberg and Charles Weaver.
