Woodsongs 479: Masters of the Acoustic Guitar

There is no blues in this latest show from the excellent Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour but I know that many of the bluesinthenorthwest.com readers are huge acoustic guitar fans. This show has a set of acoustic gems available in hi bitrate MP3 audio and Windows Media Video. Check out show 479.


RUSS BARENBERG is one of the most dynamic pickers in acoustic music. He got his start in 1970 with the groundbreaking bluegrass band Country Cooking and since then has been a member of a variety of highly influential groups, most notably his work in a trio with dobro master Jerry Douglas and bassist Edgar Meyer. His most recent album When at Last was nominated for a Grammy. MURIEL ANDERSON is one of the foremost fingerstyle guitarists in the world. She is still the only woman to hold the National Guitar Picking Championship title. Her music spans the globe in styles, unified by an honest humanity and superb artistry. Her latest CD explores the harp guitar. JONATHAN “JUANITO” PASCUAL has been called “one of the greatest American flamenco guitarists.” He is a multifaceted guitarist, composer, and teacher who has performed in styles ranging from jazz and blues, to classical guitar, klezmer, as well as flamenco. Since 2005, he has been the director of the Annual Summer Flamenco Institute at New England Conservatory in Boston. Cosas On Común is his most recent release.
