Folk Music & Beyond: John Doyle Talks Guitar!

Oct 23, 2020

Join us this Saturday 3 pm (PDT) on KALW’s Folk Music & Beyond for our conversation with Irish guitarist John Doyle.  He’ll talk about his love of traditional music and his collaborations with the renowned Irish-American band Solas, fiddler Liz Carroll, roots musician Tim O’Brien, and British singer Linda Thompson.

With so many fine guitarists out there, what makes John Doyle so special?  For one thing, he’s among the few notable left-handed guitarists in a right-handed world.  And another factoid—he’s among the few guitarists who got to perform for President Obama in-person.  And by the way, he also happens to be one of the most outstanding, ground-breaking guitarists in traditional music.
