Email a Friend

All the way from South Africa, guitarist and composer Guy Buttery makes a special appearance in the WNYC studio for this New Sounds. 

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 .  Guy Buttery performs live and makes good on his threat to premiere a brand-new work.  In his interview, Buttery also touches on practically living on top of a wilderness preserve, Led Zeppelin, and much more...
