Elias Khouri, A 17-year-old Pittsburgh born and raised guitarist, who is making strides at becoming a popular figure in the Pittsburgh music scene playing funk, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll.
Elias started playing guitar when he was 13, playing mostly air guitar to his dad’s record collection. His dad’s collection is comprised of nearly every genre. But Elias was into guitar. It was the instrument that took front stage.
He’s been featured at the Three Rivers Arts Festival, First Night Pittsburgh, Deutschtown Music Festival, Pittsburgh Blues and Roots Festival, Blues in the Square, PumpkinFest, and clubs all over Pittsburgh. We’re delighted to welcome him to Johnstown for his first appearance at our festival.
