Guitarist Jesse Cook to Make Stop at UH This Fall

Chris Hardwick

Houston, April 23, 2015 — Global guitar virtuoso Jesse Cook will be performing songs from his latest album and his vast and varied catalog during a concert at the University of Houston this fall.

Cook will take the stage at Cullen Performance Hall on Saturday, Oct. 17, as part of his One World Tour. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased online at, by phone at 713-462-6647 or at the TDECU Stadium ticket office at 3750 Cullen Blvd.

Cook has spent the past two decades criss-crossing the world in restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration. The Paris-born, Toronto-raised musician stayed home in his studio for "One World," his ninth studio album. Instead of a foreign legion of performers, he relied on his own devices. And instead of exploring cul de sacs of music — flamenco, classical, rumba, world beat, pop, blues or jazz — he united them.
