Another Moment In Music

You may recall my entry last month about recent music acquisitions and that I was raving about progressive acoustic guitarist Michael Hedges. I’ve added another guitarist to my list—Kaki King. She’s everything Hedges was, and everything he wasn’t.

I had been watching the local news on CBS and left the TV on while doing some more web browsing. Letterman came on and I paid little attention until I heard a familiar, Hedges-like sound. I looked up and saw this diminutive (she’s only five feet tall) young girl performing Playing With Pink Noise and was instantly entranced. I am in awe at the skill of her style of playing.

You can watch videos of this and other songs on her web site, and the iTunes Music Store carries both her albums.
