PRESTON REED at STRING JAM CLUB – Saturday 16th September 2017

“The Borders haven of acoustic music.” (The List)
The County Hotel, 1-5 High Street, Selkirk, Scottish Borders TD7 4BZ

Widely thought of as the world’s most gifted guitarist.” (Total Guitar)

On Saturday 16th September 2017 String Jam Club welcomes guitar virtuoso Preston Reed.  Preston is a one-man-miracle-guitar-man and “widely thought of as the world’s most gifted guitarist” (Total Guitar). To watch him perform is to witness the bending of reality, and seeing is believing. The New York master tweaks the nose of musical convention, pokes the eye of received wisdom and burns the rulebook of the past. Using the two-handed integrated percussive acoustic technique which he pioneered in 1987, he fuses blues, rock, funk and jazz unlike anything you’ve heard before. Preston Reed doesn’t need a band. He is the band.

Twenty-seven years after his unique style was born, Reed’s seismic global impact has created a sea of guitarists emulating his style, many of them inspired by 1994’s hit instructional DVD, ‘The Guitar Of Preston Reed: Expanding The Realm Of Acoustic Playing’.  He is cited as a major influence by Andy McKee and Jon Gomm to name just two. Today at the height of his game, Reed’s recordings and live performances still define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.

Preston’s live shows are full of contrasts, by turns explosive and sweetly lyrical. He riffs with the conviction and guts of a rock band, yet plays with the subtlety of the most delicate of jazz pianists. There are no fancy gadgets or gimmicky FX – just 6 strings (or occasionally 12), two hands and a daring and innovative musical imagination that crosses all boundaries. With a career spanning over four decades this trailblazer still tours and records with a passion that flows into the hearts, heads and feet of his audience, don’t miss him!
