Sean Smith

Sunday, July 20, 2008

Guitarist/composer Sean Smith creates adventurous instrumental pieces for steel-string guitar, inspired by his ongoing quest for reality, his fascination with a 1930s prose poem, and the pleasure of riding the bus to the library. Sean brings his guitar to the WNYC Studio to perform, and talk about his music with host David Garland. Influenced by the "American Primitive" sound of John Fahey, by minimalism, and by a his own rich sense of harmony and the nimble dance of his fingers, Sean explores engrossing musical worlds with his guitar. This show first aired Nov. 25, 2007.

Beautiful session ~
Sean Smith's guitar work is new to me.
Glad to hear him, just by chance, in rebroadcast.
Thanks, DG.
Best regards,
