Modern Fingerstyle Guitar, featuring Calum Graham & Sean Hall
Sun, March 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
An evening of modern fingerstyle guitar featuring Calum Graham & Sean Hall.
At only 26 years old, Calum Graham (from Toronto, ON) has already enjoyed a career that would be the envy of most artists twice his age, and was recently named one of the World’s Top 30 Guitarists under 30 by Acoustic Guitar magazine. His signature playing style has enthralled millions of listeners on Youtube and Spotify, and has led to tours across America, Europe, and China.
Calum plays both the Acoustic as well as the Harp Guitar in his live set, and his original melodies are guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings. His music embraces elements of folk, world, and blues – all built upon the foundation of the fingerstyle technique.
“The most promising young guitarist I’ve seen. His command of the guitar is already really impressive!” — Andy McKee
Sean Hall is a modern fingerstyle guitarist from Bellingham, WA. Weaving beautiful melodies with lush harmonies and percussive elements, Sean’s performances invite audiences to experience the melodic landscapes he creates. Sean has toured extensively in 48 states and over 20 countries, winning the Epic Records national competition and being featured at The Gorge Amphitheater. His debut solo guitar recording of original compositions is produced by renowned guitarist and producer Antoine Dufour with co-arrangement by Calum Graham and Trevor Gordon Hall. Inspired by trailblazers such as Michael Hedges, Alex Degrassi and Phil Keaggy, Sean strives to continue the legacy of smashing the boundaries of what can be done on the acoustic guitar.
“Sean’s musical landscape is deep, introspective and powerful, touching the soul. His melodies are well written and arranged tastefully bringing the listener into a profound experience. It’s a great place to be.” — Antoine Dufour, CandyRat Recording Artist
“Sean’s playing is a great balance of melody, space, patience and power. This is guitar playing with intention. Close your eyes and take a listen!” — Trevor Gordon Hall, Guitarist
