Biography

While searching in grandma’s attic, the ten-year old Guy Louis found his grandfather’s guitar in an old beat up case. That began his musical journey that soon included his grandfather’s mandolin, violin and other instruments. He took lessons from time to time, but mostly learned to play on his own and with friends.

At age nineteen, after starting college in computer science, Guy realized that pursuing a path of music was what he really wanted to do. A few years of playing in bands, the folk circuit and other musical avenues finally led him to presenting musical programs in schools. This began the Chautauqua Express Musical Programs in 1986. Family concerts soon also became a specialty as Guy’s professional performing became full-time and year-round.

Three full decades and thousands of performances later, Guy is continuing to create and perform programs that express his musical passions, and also contribute to his community.
