THE WEST COAST TAKOMA RECORDS GUITAR MASTERS TOUR!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TAKOMA RECORDS GUITAR LEGENDS:
BEGIN CONCERT TOUR DATES MARCH, 2016
We are proud to announce that three of the original members of the legendary “Takoma 7” will be touring together for the first time starting this coming March 2016! Penned the “Takoma Records Guitar Masters Tour”, these shows will feature three of the finest finger style guitar masters: Peter Lang, Rick Ruskin and Toulouse Engelhardt. These guitarists along with Leo Kottke and Robbie Basho were hand picked by the late John Fahey and signed to his now cult label, Takoma Records and their affiliates back in the years.
” I am quite excited to be playing with Rick and Toulouse on this upcoming tour. For the first time it brings these three original Takoma guitarists together.
I have many fond memories of those early years, and look forward to creating some of that ambiance with these two other masters of finger style guitar.”… Peter Lang
“I try my best not to think like other finger style guitarists.” …Rick Ruskin
“It’s going to be pure dynamite “chewing the pine” with these other legends of finger style guitar!”... Toulouse Engelhardt
