Peter Biedermann is a solo instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ that has been composing and performing for over 40 years and will be appearing for the first time in the Montclair Public Library. The common thread throughout his musical background is crossing the boundaries of music genres. This hybrid, contemporary style melds elements of American and European folk with jazz and blues shadings; underpinned by subtle ambient electronics. PB began focusing on performing original solo instrumentals beginning in 2000. The music is now being presented in intimate settings such as libraries, art galleries, house concerts, churches etc. PB will be focusing on new pieces as well as material from his latest recording ‘Tales From The Desert’ on a variety of guitars in unique tunings. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last 50+ years. Fans of fellow guitarists such as Michael Hedges, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Alex de Grassi and Pierre Bensusan will enjoy this music.
This concert is free and open to the public. Registration is recommended.
