Come out for a night of truly great music by instrumental guitar
virtuoso, Francis Doughty, and his special guest, reknown singer-
songwriter Deb Pasternak. Timberhead Music Artist Francis Doughty
creates a unique voice through his guitar. Doughty's playing is
riveting and instantly engages the audience. "This is fingerstyle
guitar up there with the best of the best!" (Derek Sivers, President,
Inspired by the likes of Leo Kottke, John Fahey, and a wide range of
classical music, Francis Doughty's music ranges from the thrilling to
the haunting. Indeed there are a lot of good 6- and 12- string
players out there, but it is his masterful song- writing which makes
Doughty a true standout. Attending a Francis Doughty concert never
fails to leave an audience enthralled. His shows present a mix of his
own songs, several classic covers by Kottke, and always a surprise or
two. Audiences enjoy Francis' down to earth musings and colorful humor
-- he makes a genuine connection.
Praising Doughty's "virtuosic handling of his instrument" The Daily
Hampshire Gazette goes on to say: "It takes a large talent to keep
people listening when the only voice to be heard is that of a single
instrument, even if it has six or 12 strings.... Doughty uses his
strings to get where he's going. Bring your disordered thoughts. His
notes will comb them free."
Also appearing will be Special Guest, Deb Pasternak, about whom the
Austin Chronicle writes: "Originality that connects."
"She is also an incredible live act... Don't miss seeing her if you
get the chance." (John Black, Editor's Pick, Digital City, Boston)
Don't miss this opportunity to experience two exceptionally talented
performers and a show whose music is guaranteed to transport you!
