This month our Court In Session: Windsor Guitar Nights features Van Larkins, Mark Goudswaard, Filippo Dall'Asta and Zach Johnson.
“Van Larkins doesn’t just play guitar…he creates a beautiful musical soundscape. His application of musical cascades and original compositions shed new light to the term “EAR CANDY” Phil Emmanuel.
“To listen to Van Larkins play guitar is to watch some magic of nature that both amazes and calms the spirit. The listener is drawn into his world, a world where his seductive melodies tell tales of adventure and of love and weave a path through a land that is new and exciting yet somehow familiar.” Andrew White – Recording Artist
A rare solo outing from Tapedown records recording artist Mark Goudswaard. Bringing together a unique and virtuosic fusion of Blues, Latin and Afrocolombian music. Think a mixture of Ry Cooder, Marc Ribot & Stevie Ray Vaughan. Accompanied by long time friend and one of the finest up-and-coming double bass players in this hemisphere Christopher Axe.
"The playing is superb and the compositions and arrangements are compelling and intriguing. This is a fantastic guitarist with an accomplished ensemble with first class material." John Wheatcroft.
