Foundry Hall presents: Adrian Legg
Adrian Legg is an English guitar player who has been called "impossible to categorize". He plays custom guitars that are a hybrid of electric and acoustic, and his fingerstyle picking technique has been acknowledged by the readers of Guitar Player who voted Legg the "best acoustic fingerstyle" player four years in a row (19931996).
Starting to gig as a solo artist in the mid 1970s, Legg won a Guitar magazine solo acoustic competition in both the composition and performance categories, and began writing articles for that magazine and other guitar publications (and later Guitar Player in America). He released his first of five albums in Britain in 1976. 20 albums later he is still creating and sharing with audiences all over the world.
For Legg, the fulcrum and essence of his creativity is in live performance. Playing live is the whole point, he stresses. Everyone makes a journey, an effort; we all come together me, the audience, the people who run the venue to share this wonderful, universal, human emotional interaction. This is where music lives.
Throughout his career, he has earned the highest praise from the media:
Quite simply, there is no one else like his dazzling technique and equally large dollops of spirit, humor, passion, eclecticism and spontaneity. - BBC radio personality Andy Kershaw
"Legg is, above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility, - the St. Petersburg Times.
Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra.
