New Acoustic Music- The Undead

The Turtle Island String Quartet's concert performance on last week's program was one of the best examples of a branch of new music known simple as "New Acoustic Music." It combines American bluegrass, jazz, and folk styles with elements of classical or ethnic music. This program presents some of the other leading practitioners of the form, including several live performances by guitarist Peppino d'Agostino of new works.
