Oft-touring Pittsburgh fingerstyle guitarist Daryl Shawn appears in Carrboro at 2nd Wind on Thursday, October 20. 2nd Wind is located at 118 E. Main St. The performance begins at 9:00 p.m. Admission is free, and all ages are welcome.
An alumnus of Boston’s esteemed Berklee College of Music who went on to develop his craft during five years in Oaxaca, Mexico, Shawn combines his taste for unusual chords with the guitar-thumping techniques of flamenco and rhythms culled from African music to create an eclectic mix fueled by a healthy appetite for rocking out.
Guitar International magazine has noted that he “possesses the ability to take a nylon-string guitar and make it roar with dynamic precision and raging power.”
Fans of Kaki King, Tommy Emmanuel and Rodrigo y Gabriela will find much to enjoy.
