One of the profound influences in modern fingerstyle guitar, Preston Reed is looked up to by the likes of Andy Reed, Antione Dufour, and virtually every other player on the scene. As a teenager, Reed was initially influenced by Leo Kottke and John Fahey and in the beginning of his career was a more traditional fingerstyle player. In the […]

Just found out about Tom’s passing and included a couple fingerstyle covers of his tunes for the first Fall episode. Enjoy!

Friday Night is always great at Kelly’s, but perhaps never better than last Friday.  “The Forever Ago’s” played their first public show and it was a knockout! Bandleader Wes Philips has assembled an awesome cast of players and blended them, with excellent originals, into a solid ensemble. With Wes on lead vocals, three backup singers, intelligent […]
