Ian Ethan "Run Toward The Mountains" Live: Headwaters Theatre, Portland, OR
Boston-based 18-string acoustic double-neck guitarist Ian Ethan is increasingly gaining recognition both for his unique instrumental compositions and for the highly innovative playing methods which are required to perform them.

One of only about five musicians worldwide to tackle the double-neck guitar in earnest, he fluidly combines a variety of self-invented playing techniques necessitated by his multi-layered compositions, which, taken together, have begun to establish the instrument's musical validity perhaps more so than the work of any other artist.

In January 2013 Ian was invited to perform with some of the world's foremost guitarists and bass players as part of Muriel Anderson's "All-Star Guitar Night" at the annual NAMM convention in Anaheim CA, where he shared the stage with Robben Ford, Victor Wooten, and Stanley Jordan, among others. Since then he has gone on to perform with some of the most respected artists in his genre, including international solo bass icon Michael Manring and Grammy Award-winning reed player Paul McCandless (Bela Fleck & The Flecktones), as well as top-notch classical musicians from the Boston Symphony and Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra.

In addition to performing and collaborating with several of his longtime musical heroes, Ian has performed and/or recorded with some of the best up-and-coming acoustic musicians from around the country and beyond, including Jeremy Kittel (Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn, Jars of Clay), Nathaniel Smith (Chris Thile, Sarah Jarosz), Japanese harpist Motoshi Kosako (Paul McCandless, Stockton Symphony) and Austrian hang drum virtuoso Manu Delago (Bjork, Anoushka Shankar).

Most recently, after both were featured nationwide on the same NPR segment ("Here & Now", Dec. 2013), Ian has begun an ongoing collaboration with 4-Time Grammy Award-winning cellist Eugene Friesen (Trio Globo, Paul Winter Consort.) The duo premiered their new collaborative works during two recent shows at the Boston Museum of Science Planetarium.

Coming to Portland's Headwaters Theatre with New Orleans-based drummer/percussionist G Maxwell Zemanovic as part of a coast-to-coast tour in support of Ian's most recent solo album "Run Toward The Mountains", concertgoers can expect to hear a wide range of material. The double-disc album features the two sides of his playing: "straight up solo acoustic", and at the other end of the spectrum, his meticulously-crafted live looping compositions which make full use of 21st-century digital technologies to enable seemingly infinite layers of sound and sophisticated on-the-spot orchestration that extends well beyond the reach of most looping performers.

As one first-time listener in California exclaimed, "Ian's music is phenomenal - watching him play is not 'listening to music' ... it's a full mind experience. Transporting."
