Ian Ethan Case w/ Greg Thornburg
Following a busy 2016 which included his first tour of Europe, two performances with a full symphony orchestra, and roughly 39,000 miles of travel within the US alone, acoustic double-neck guitarist and Candyrat recording artist Ian Ethan Case presents a new tour for 2017, previewing music from his upcoming album Earth Suite and featuring a never-before-seen custom instrument affectionately dubbed "The Beast".

Incorporating newly developed "acoustic synthesis" technology from American inventor Paul Vo, the instrument was co-designed by Case and private luthier Wade Sylvester and took over 7 years to build. With an array of tuning levers allowing for accessing hundreds of tunings on the fly, along with sophisticated electromagnetic technology that physically manipulates the vibration of each string, be prepared to hear other-worldly sounds you've never imagined coming from a guitar, double-neck or otherwise. Joining Ian will be live looping and electronics specialist Stephanie Case, adding even more sonic and orchestrational variety to the mix.

Case has been gaining increasing recognition among the national and international music community for his original compositions, highly-innovative playing techniques, and creative use of 21st century looping technologyall of which combine to create music that has been described by critics and listeners as revolutionary, stunning, magical, and even spiritual.
One first-time listener wrote, Watching Ian play is not listening to music . . . its a full mind experience.  He performed at Muriel Andersons 2013 All-Star Guitar Night at the annual NAMM convention in Anaheim; has collaborated with 4-time Grammy-winning cellist Eugene Friesen; and has been featured on NPRs Here and Now program as well as on the nationally-syndicated public radio show Echoes.

Opening the show will be solo fingerstyle guitarist Greg Thornburg (www.gregthornburg.com). While the guitar was his first instrument, Greg has spent most of his adult life as a drummer and percussionist. Those earliest influences never left him, however, and with the releases of his 2 CDs "Kaleidoscope" and "Hook Echo", he's rededicated himself to his original muse.

Greg's affinity for rhythm, bass lines, and distinctive harmonies is well represented in fingerstyle playing. He greatly admires players such as Andy McKee, Antoine Dufour, Leo Kottke, and Wisconsin's own Willy Porter for their innovative approach to guitar playing. His performance features mostly original material, with a few arrangements mixed in. No longer shielded by drums, a soloist's stage is a fresh perspective, and a new way to connect with and entertain an audience.
