All the way from South Africa, guitarist and composer Guy Buttery makes a special appearance in the WNYC studio. He's a virtuoso on the guitar and has developed a unique style inspired by both the traditional music of South Africa and the likes of fingerstyle pickers like Michael Hedges. For this edition of New Sounds, Guy Buttery performs live, and has threatened to premiere a brand-new work. And much more...
