“Bill Kirchen is one of the giants of the guitar, especially that perfect blend of wood and wire born at the junction of form and function known as the Telecaster. With Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen he helped warp the minds of a generation. During the four decades since he has keep playing the electric guitar while becoming recognized as one of the folk music masters of the USA. His career includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates a musical tradition where rock ‘n’ roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing, and California honky-tonk.” – Art Menius, Executive Director of The ArtsCenter.
