A modern musician with a heart full of folk music, Aaron Lefebvre is a finger-style guitarist from Pittsburgh, PA. He grew up in the rural hills of both Central and Southwestern Pennsylvania in a household where folk, blues, rock, and jazz were a constant presence in the air. Blooming from his self-taught approach with acoustic and electric guitar, his music combines traditional and folk guitar musings with modern finger-style techniques that follow a musical narrative to inspire the imagination.
Aaron has shared stages with guitarists such as Antoine Dufour, Craig D'Andrea, Peter Janson, Steve Davison, Vin Downes, Ian Ethan Case, Daniel Bachman, Ryan Ayers, as well as singer-songwriters Jess Klein, Gaelyn Lea, Carrie Elkin, Edward David Anderson, and musical groups such as Della Mae and Bombadil. He has also been invited to present a guitar workshop at the University of Massachusetts Boston campus entitled, “The Art of Not Knowing,” an exploration of musical imagination and creative process.
Aaron is also an advocate for the awareness of disabilities in the arts, with a focus on the music industry. He writes essays the explore the experiences he has had with blindness and low-vision while working as a musician and navigating an industry that is highly competitive, and which sometimes overlooks the unique qualities of musicians and artists with disabilities.
