Duck Baker is one of the most highly regarded fingerstyle guitarists of his generation. He is unique among jazz guitarists in that his repertoire spans the entire history of music from ragtime through swing to modern masters like thelonius monk and herbie Nichols to free improvisation. His most ambitious record ‘spinning song’ got rave reviews in jazz times, cadence, coda and the new York times with acoustic guitar magazine dubbing it “one of the best guitar records ever recorded – by anybody.”
Racker and Duck will be joining forces for this amazing opportunity to see two of the most influential performers of our time. Make sure not to miss this!
