His brilliant guitar style is difficult to characterize but has been described as “Eclectic, immersive and mesmerizing.” His compositions are referred to as “soundscapes” because, with just his guitar he can take you to other worlds and maybe even to heaven itself.

Fridays on Prouty with Sadie Bass Band - Friday, August 9 at 7:30 pm - Free Concert
