Oct. 16: Preston Reed in Mill Valley

Posted By on Thu, Oct 16, 2014 at 1:11 PM

No one plays the guitar like Preston Reed. A self-taught musician, Reed's approach to the acoustic instrument uses a one-of-a-kind, two-handed finger-plucking technique that's as spellbinding as it is melodic. Reed's technique often includes both of his hands on the neck of the guitar, each tapping away in an overhand style that adds an intense percussive element, especially when Reed taps on the guitar body as well as the strings. Reed incorporates blues, funk and world music genres. This week, Reed comes to the North Bay, performing compositions from his four-decade career on Thursday, Oct. 16, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre, 142 Throckmorton Ave., Mill Valley. 8pm. $20-$25. 415.383.9600.
