posted in: Past Shows

On this episode, we revisit the lush landscape of the guitar and bouzouki as lead and accompanying instruments. Although frequently maligned by traditional music purists, the guitar and bouzouki have found a firm foothold in traditional Irish and Scottish music in both lead roles and as backup instruments.This week, we feature the following bands with exceptional guitar and bouzouki players: Randal Bays and Roger Landes, John Sherman, Deaf Shepherd, Dervish, Kevin MacLeod & Alec Finn, Marla Fibish & Jimmy Crowley, Dick Gaughan, Liz Carroll & John Doyle, Chulrua, An Tua, Steph Geremia, FullSet, and Beth Patterson.
