DUCK BAKER ( Tompkins Sq ) w/ Woody Man

  • wonders of nature 131 Grand Street Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

Duck Baker is one of the most highly regarded fingerstyle guitarists of his generation. His repertoire ranges from traditional Irish music through old-time mountain music and bluegrass to blues, gospel, and ragtime to swing and modern jazz, to free improvisation, and while he is best known in the guitar world, he has made a reputation in several other camps, including the Celtic music world and the avant-garde scene. He explains this eclecticism by pointing out that folk musicians have always been more eclectic than folklorists want to admit, and noting that his approach to American music is similar to that of a classical musician to that tradition. Baker is also a prodigious composer, having written well over200 pieces, mostly for guitar, and an even more prodigious arranger for the instrument. His recording career spans five decades and includes some 29 records under his own name, another 8 in duo or trio settings, and a further 32 appearances on anthologies or as a sideman. He has also authored 12 music books and a similar number of instructional videos.

"Woody Mann blurs the lines between jazz, blues, classical, and world music creating his own sound in the process. 
His wizardry on the fret board is matched by his ability to convey deep feelings with his songs – 
creating moods that incite, delight, or simply soothe. Attempts to categorize his music simply misses the point. 
This is brilliant playing that demands to be heard.” SING OUT! MAGAZINE.
