Three brilliantly creative winners of SAW’s MASC take turns sharing songs with us. After a dozen songs, there will be a brief intermission, followed by a few more songs from each performer to complete the showcase evening. Drum roll, please:
A guitar pull: A few musicians sit together and take turns presenting songs. Originating with country music in the south, there might traditionally be only one guitar to be shared or “pulled” from one musician’s hands to the next. You may also hear the terms song swap, in the round, or round robin. And yes, we welcome other instruments too. Sound by Kevin Trung Le. Produced by Ron Goad [email protected]
