Adrian Legg in Woodstock!

November 19, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

“To say Legg plays a good guitar is like saying Yehudi Menuhin saws a fine fiddle. This man is ridiculously talented.” (Music Week) Voted “Guitarist of the Decade” by Guitarist magazine Guitar Player’s Reader’s Poll Winner for Best Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitarist for 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 For the past few decades, English guitarist Adrian Legg has been on a quest to find the holy guitar grail that melds tone, technique and technology. Sounding like an orchestra, or a lilting folk instrument, or a grungy rocker, with narrative melodies and nakedly emotive tones, the essence of his creativity is in live performance. “Playing live is the whole point,” he stresses. “Everyone makes a journey, an effort; we all come together me, the audience, the people who run the venue to share this wonderful, universal, human emotional interaction. This is where music lives.” Described as a “kind of cross between Robert Fripp [;legendary King Crimson guitarist]; and Garrison Keillor,” Legg is a genuine entertainer who excels at telling stories with music and wittily regaling his audiences with true stories and thought provoking observations on a spectrum of topics. Popular BBC radio personality Andy Kershaw says of Legg, “Quite simply, there is no one else like him . . . dazzling technique and equally large dollops of spirit, humor, passion, eclecticism and spontaneity.”
