An Evening with Preston Reed
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The New York master tweaks the nose of musical convention, pokes the eye of received wisdom and burns the rule book of the past. Using the two-handed acoustic technique he pioneered in the 1980s, he fuses chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion that integrates the breathtaking potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of his original compositions are as unique as the man's execution, as blues, rock, funk and jazz interlock in a sonic brew unlike anything you've heard before. Preston Reed doesn't need a band. He is the band.
