Larry Pattis is a solo guitarist whose style includes ‘fingerstyle guitar,’ but can also be defined as a range from classical to jazz to country to blues to Celtic fusion and beyond.
Named one of the Top 10 Best Acoustic Music Artists of the Decade by the International Acoustic Music Awards, Larry Pattis has been a featured headline performer at such illustrious venues as the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Millennium Stage in Washington DC.
“My particular style has evolved over the years into a fusion of folk, classical, and Celtic styles, which focuses mainly on both melodic and rhythmic variation, and creates a cohesive and linear story-telling-form with each piece,” Pattis said.
“Each piece is a short-story, or perhaps a chapter describing a life experience,” Pattis said.
Often billed as an acoustic jazz guitarist, Eric Skye actually occupies a unique niche between Americana, jazz, and blues.
Eric Skye has performed live on morning television for NBC and FOX, has been featured on National Public Radio, Public Radio International, and performed on many live radio broadcasts all over the United States. Skye has been featured in magazines such as Guitar Player, Fretboard Journal, Premier Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Guitar World, Jazziz, Jazz Improv, 20th Century Guitar, Acoustic (UK), Akustik Gitarree (Germany), The Guitar Note, The Guitar Bench, and was on the cover of Acoustic Guitar in China.
