Charlie Hunter Trio
October 12, 2017 @ 7:30 pm$25 - $30
Charlie Hunter is a magician with a guitar – a one man band – as he continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. John Fordham, writing in London’s The Guardian, says he “boasts one of the most original techniques in the instrument’s history.”
With a career spanning 16 years and almost 20 albums, Charlie Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative writer and bandleader. He has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, D’Angelo and countless others. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight-string guitar.
Hunter has previously recorded for the venerable Blue Note label, Concord, Ropeadope, GroundUP and others. His recent independent venture is steered by his motivation to release music that most inspires him. Critics have touted his genius technique, but it’s his profound artistic sensibility that propels his original music. Hunter’s signature style of writing and performing has secured his place as one of todays’ great guitarists.
At Salem State, Hunter will be joined by drummer George Sluppick and saxophonist Michael Blake.
