Event Description

Roy Buchanan 1939-1988

In 1960 Roy Buchanan replaced Fred Carter Jr. as guitarist in Ronnie Hawkins' Hawks. After a short period, he left the Hawks and teenager Robbie Robertson took over the lead guitar. Buchanan, one of Robertson's main guitar influences, also performed as an opening act for the reunited Band on their 1987 tour. A reluctant superstar, Buchanan was a consummate guitarist, capable of techniques that other guitarists only dream of.

Arlen Roth
"The Master of the Telecaster," Arlen Roth is a " guitarist's guitarist," with a remarkable 35-year career. His legendary guitar prowess crosses genres, styles, including one of his specialties, slide guitar. His powerful version of "When a Man Loves a Woman" was called by Guitar Player magazine "likely the most intense workout ever recorded on a Telecaster." His current release, Landscape, showcases his hallmark genius, his ability to take any note, any nuance, any tool, anything he's ever heard, and somehow make it uniquely his own.

Danny Kortchmar
Guitarist, session musician, producer and songwriter, Danny Kortchmar worked with singer-songwriters David Crosby, Carole King, Graham Nash, Carly Simon and James Taylo. He defined the signature sound of the 1970s singer-songwriter era. Jackson Browne and Don Henley have recorded numerous songs written or co-written by Kortchmar, who was Henley's songwriting and producing partner in the 1980s.
