SHELDON KING - Extraordinary Guitar
(Fri 28th / 8pm / £4)

If you missed the launch of Sheldon's solo acoustic album 'Eko-Sticks' here is another chance to see Sheldon's astonishing and original guitar style. 'Those who have seen him play live will understand that what often sounds like two or three people playing together is achieved solely on a battered looking acoustic guitar in real time with no effects pedals or sequencers. Fingering with both hands on the fretboard and using the body of the instrument for percussive interpolations, Sheldon uses open tunings and modal scales to create a music that is technically demanding but at the same time totally approachable.' - Leon Brabant, New Acoustic Directions
