Biedermann, Peter Instrumental Acoustic Guitar Concert Music
100% original solo instrumental music performed on 6 and 12 string guitars? Hmmm...sounds like a hard sell. Not really. The reason it works is simple. All you need is a performer who loves what he does..and...an audience of engaging and open minds that is willing to go for the ride. I do believe that is exactly the type of individual that would attend a musical performance in a library. While PB's influences are all over the map and not limited to any specific musical genre, all the listener has to do is close their eyes and let their imagination be their guide. Check out his website for more info as well as some newly posted YouTube videos that will give you an idea of the type of material you would hear at one of his concerts.
$201- $350
