Solo Guitar concert by Peter Biedermann
Forbes Library (20 West St, Northampton MA)
Peter Biedermann is a solo fingerstyle instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ who has performed in several different contexts since the mid '70s. While his music doesn't settle into any particular genre, it is a hybrid, contemporary style that melds elements of American, European and other world influences into a jambalaya of sound enhanced by subtle electronics and live looping on various guitars in unique tunings. PB began focusing on performing original music starting in the mid '80s.
The focus of the concert program will be on pieces from his catalogue of recordings beginning with 'Sound & Spirit' (2000) through the latest live release 'Say What?' (2020). The program also encourages questions from the audience and will include some of the history and evolution of original fingerstyle guitar playing.
