Finger Food is a feast not only for guitar lovers, but also for anyone with a passion for acoustic music. The guitarists perform “in the round” and trade songs and stories about their compositions and their approach to the guitar in a casual concert setting. The music focuses on contemporary instrumental American Fingerstyle Guitar with folk, jazz, Celtic, classical, and blues influences.
The guitarists are very different stylistically, and these different styles contribute to an evening of broad musical tastes. They will play solo, duets, and trio work. The guitarists also will be performing on some very unique custom built instruments and historic instruments.
