Garrin Benfield Playing at Mighty Fine Guitars on Sept. 9th in Lafayette

Garrin Benfield Playing:

Mighty Fine Guitars
85 Lafayette Cir, Lafayette
Friday, September 9th, 2016
8:00 PM | $15 – $20 suggested

All the way from New York City, Garrin Benfield is coming to assemble and disassemble whole bands right before your very ears.

Are you not hip to looping yet? Click [HERE] for just a wee sample of what it’s all about. Looping allows the player to compose and play not only guitar lines, but bass, drums and – in Garrin’s case – controlled feedback for hour, vocal and keyboard effect, all in real-time. It’s really quite astonishing, especially in the hands (and feet) of this master and pioneer of the form.
