THE SWEET SPOT PRESENTS.... GARRIN BENFIELD AND YACOUBA SISSOKO
Garrin Benfield's music is a blend of moody, guitar driven rock and polyrhythmic groove all run through the filter of a very serious Singer/Songwriter. His talent shines through as a solo artist when he flat-picks his way through complicated and lightning-fast arrangements and also while he uses a Loop Station to create mesmerizing soundscapes upon which he lays blistering rock, blues and jazz licks, darkened by his extensive use of effect pedals. As a bandleader, Garrin can command the attention of seasoned players and improvise with the dexterity and ingenuity of players many years his senior. Improvisation is at the center of a Garrin Benfield concert experience. Whether at a solo show or at a full band event, Garrin twists and turns the tunes each night in an ever-evolving attempt to keep searching for new musical challenges.

Yacouba is in demand as one of the best kora players in the world, playing with jazz, Latin and R&B bands as well as traditional African songs. In addition to performing as a soloist and with his band SIYA, he has toured with a variety of well-known artists such as Regina Carter, Baaba Maal, Rachel Brown, Kavita Shah, Kakande and Roberto Fonseca. Yacouba has also recorded with Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon, Abdoulaye Diabate and Ami Koita.
