About Federico

8 Strings are a mixture of soul, pop and bluesy atmosphere on acoustic set.
Hemel Hempstead

Almost3 is an acoustic duo born and based between London and Milton Keynes, that fuses pop and soul with a touch of Blues. The powerful and colourful voice of Darcy Winter perfectly matches the magnificent sound of Federico Accardo’s guitar, guiding you from the most velvety sound to the hottest groove that will shake your bones. Their repertoire is an amazing journey from the 60’s to the very latest hits such as Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder, Prince, Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran and many more. Passion and high drive combined with professionalism make Almost3 the perfect choice for your private party, wedding, corporate events, venues, restaurants and anything that involves entertaining an audience with a high-standard acoustic act. Almost3 can provide a state-of-the-art P.A. system, if needed, but are also able to perform totally unplugged for a very cosy and intimate setting.

This band really helped us out in a sticky situation - a band pulled out just days before the event and this duo really pulled through at the very last minute! They did some great song covers and they were willing to change some of their songs to match our family friendly event. They were both really friendly and easy to talk to on the day and got on with all their own set up. Prior to the event they were easy to contact and responded quickly to my queries, sending across all their H&S docs on request. Would definitely recommend!
