WILLIAM YEOMAN finds Larry Mitchell is playing for keeps
US Grammy Award-winning guitarist, producer and engineer Larry Mitchell has worked with many musical greats, but never played in Australia. Until now.
And he says he’s “stoked” to have been invited to the inaugural Strings Attached: the West Australian Guitar Festival in Margaret River next month.
As keynote speaker, he’ll talk about his sheer love of the guitar and of its music.
Mitchell, who has worked with the likes of Ric Ocasek, Billy Squier and Tracy Chapman, has nine solo recordings under his belt and presently tours with his own trio in addition to First Nation artists Shelley Morningsong, Dawn Avery, Joy Harjo and Robert Mirabal.
Strings Attached: the West Australian Guitar Festival has a line-up of local, interstate and international talent representing a broad range of styles and instruments, from rock, blues, folk, flamenco, Persian, classical, jazz to guitar, ukulele, banjo, oud, mandolin and vocals. It's on October 11-13. See stringsattachedfestival.com.au.
