featuring John Renbourn, Martin Carthy, Stefan Grossman, Bob Brozman, Martin Simpson, Duck Baker, Brad Jones & Peppino D'Agostino
The performers in this 60 minute dvd express different traditions, personalities and stylistic approaches through their guitars. Yet there is a commonality, not only in the instrument and fundamental approach to it but also in the choice of these players to take risks and to respect tradition. Bob Brozman plays Hawaiian Greetings unlike any of the Hawaiian guitarists of the 1920s, yet his version overflows with love of his sources. Peppino D'Agostino uses unorthodox techniques to transform his guitar into a Brazilian rhythm band.
