Clawhammer chamber music

Thanks to our good friend Michael J. Miles of Chicago - the man who showed that Bach's music can be played perfectly on clawhammer banjo - for his latest e-newsletter.

Michael announced earlier this year the release of his first guitar CD, A-sides, featuring instrumental settings of hit songs from the middle fifty years of the 20th century - the thirteenth of his albums on CDBaby. The all-star ensemble includes Darol Anger, one of America's finest violinists/fiddle players. A video on the newsletter shows Michael's ensemble playing 'My favourite things', and Anger will also take part in the launch concert in Chicago on 16 October.

A month earlier (13-17 Sept.) Michael will be playing three concerts as 'composer in residence' at the Carolina Chamber Music Festival in New Bern, NC. More details here.
