Robert Allena

I began to play the guitar in March of 1960. Although I had always longed to be a professional musician the road I took was quite off that path. Following a family tradition I was on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1971-1978, then spent another 16 years as a U.S. Government officer where I was fortunate to live and work overseas. My wife, Debra, and I were married in Vienna in 1986 and it is still my favorite city anywhere in the world. I then worked in the private sector, mostly in management, until finally retiring in 2017. Now I get to devote full time to the guitar which has culminated in the release of my very first album, “A Guitar on Christmas Day.” There will hopefully be more to come.

I have had many influences over the years which I duly noted on my website. In particular, this first album is dedicated to Chet Atkins, my very first and still most important influence.
