|In the 70th and early 80th Jan Akkerman was voted the best guitar player in the world!
His work with the famous Dutch band Focus put him on the international map. As a solo artist or with his own band he is now a welcome guest at festivals all around the world.
Besides electric guitar he excels in playing acoustic guitar. His almost classical solos express great virtuosity and musicality. His CD "Live in Japan" was very successful. His latest album "North Sea Jazz Legendary Concerts" was released in 2013.
