Guys & Guitars 2 Concert – Available Online

Losing sleep because you missed the on-air broadcast of Guys and Guitars last April on Canada Live! ? Well, fret no more. The entire concert is available on the CBC Radio 2 Concerts on Demand website. (Edit: 2014-03-06 Concert stream no longer available.) For those of you who haven’t heard the story so far, I had the pleasure of hosting this concert that celebrated the diversity of music played on the guitar for CBC Radio. For the evening I was joined by four other guitarists, each performing their own distinctive style of guitar music. Rodolfo Pino-Robles, of Saskatoon, performed music from South America on the guitar and several other instruments derived from or related to the guitar; Tim Vaughn, also from Saskatoon, held down the fort for electric guitar with some of his original R&B and Funk; tunes; Regina?s own Kris Craig brought the classic sounds of the electric jazz archtop, and Vancouver’s Don Alder, the 2007 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion, dazzled the audience with his contemporary steel-string fingerstyle guitar techniques.
