Glenn Chatten contemporary folk fusion @Charslanding
"Liminal" CD Release Tour - electric violin
Glenns song writing emerges from in the in-between spaces of life: the spaces between children at a park, between a gathering of aboriginal elders, on a prairie road under the stars, on the bank of a river where spawning salmon run.
Glenns musical inspiration stems from many varying roots not the least of which is the intricate finger-picking style and social justice edge of Bruce Cockburn, the late sitar guru Ravi Shankar, and World Music visionaries, Idan Raichel of the Idan Raichel Project and Vieux Farke Touré. In discovering, being deeply moved, and influenced by the new awareness and global consciousness that is offered up by these musicians, Glenn has made a commitment to experiment with the guitar through creating innovative open tunings, varying capo arrangements, alternate rhythms and finger-picking styles. Glenn is also interested in continually using other stringed instruments, styling, arrangements from cultures such as India, Middle East and Thailand, etc.creating a blend of influences from folk, blues, jazz, classical, Celtic, Eastern and meditative styles.
