“DEIRDRE CARTWRIGHT’S ART OF THE GUITAR” Saturday morning 14th Aug 10.30am-12.30pm at the MUSE
LEADER: Deirdre Cartwright (guitar)
IN-PERSON from the MUSE BRECON : Click for TICKETS £10 per booking.
‘Rockschool’ legend guitarist Deirdre Cartwright describes her Masterclass and talk as a “A cross between Desert Island Discs and a guitar workshop…” From Charlie Christian to Bill Frisell, Deirdre will be picking out excerpts from 10 tracks to show the development of the jazz guitar through nearly a Century of music making.
Also included will be some of her favourites – Wes Montgomery, Emily Remler, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Ernest Ranglin showing a range of styles from Bebop, swing to bossa nova and fusion.
She will also play some guitar examples to illustrate how the guitar has developed different techniques, often in conjunction with technology. I think the guitar is an amazing instrument with an ability to play single note lines and chords, to take the lead or accompany. To allow guitarists incredibly expressive sounds and an ability to copy vocal techniques – all this and yet most guitarists can only sound 4 notes at a time.
Open to anyone listener or musician interested in jazz guitar. There will be lots of space for questions throughout the workshop – unmissable!
