Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master. Drawing inspiration from jazz, blues and classical he combines them seamlessly in a ‘sparkling sound which is completely his own’. He is a talented singer, entertainer and a legend in the guitar world.
While the blues are his touchstone, he seems to draw inspiration from every direction with ease and grace. Pioneering guitar legend John Fahey said it best: “You can hear classical, jazz and blues approaches somehow converging into a single sparkling sound completely his own.”
Woody has pursued a rich and diverse career; he has performed everywhere from the orchestra pits of Broadway to stages worldwide. He has recorded extensively and schooled countless guitarists through his many books and DVDs including The Art of Acoustic Blues Guitar and his latest DVD Take Command of Your Fretboard.
Woody has become one of the world’s renowned guitar masters, bringing the past up to the present with his own contemporary style.
This evening is split between a short film Harlem Street Singer and a performance by Woody Mann.
