Preston Reed In Concert

Where: North Parish Church, Montgomerie Street, Girvan KA26 9HE
When: Friday 28 June 2019 at 8pm

One of the greatest and most influential guitarists in the world, Preston Reed has been captivating audiences globally for three decades with the two-handed integrated percussive style he began developing in the 1980's.
Preston's music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of Preston's timeless, imagery-evoking compositions are as unique as his execution. Blues, rock, metal, funk, jazz and classical styles are distilled into a breath-taking visual and sonic experience - a border-hopping musical language that tells stories without words.

As millions of YouTube viewers have discovered, Reed's recordings and live performances continue to define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.
