HEDGESMICHAEL HEDGES was a trailblazing acoustic guitarist. He pioneered percussive finger style guitar, the influence of which can now be heard in the compositions and playing of many guitarists. This WoodSongs broadcast will showcase two guitar masters that are continuing Michael legacy’s of pushing the boundaries of the instrument to new stratospheres while making it their own.

ANDY MCKEE is among the world’s finest acoustic guitarists. His youthful energy and attention to song structure and melodic content elevates him above the rest. He entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. McKee’s crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists. McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. ‘Live Book’ is McKee’s first release for the label. http://www.andymckee.com/

CHRISTIE LENEE unique guitar work is often compared to visionaries like Michael Hedges, Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews- fusing folky/funky playfulness with pop/rock inspired songs and virtuosic guitar compositions. Christie was endorsed by Engler Innovations to compose music for “The Engle,” a drumstick for guitar that launched onto the market in January of 2012. Being a compositional pioneer for this product inspired an abundance of innovative techniques and a unique percussive approach to the guitar. Christie is now in the process of mixing tracks for her next album that will deliver her innovative music, empowering vocals and inspirational lyrics  http://christielenee.com/
