KAFM’s Radio Room is proud to present Chris Proctor in concert. Proctor is a contemporary guitarist who specializes in composing and performing music for 6- and 12-string guitars. He’s a prolific artist with more than 10 albums and is a U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Champion. He is known for his ability to weave various melodies throughout a song, and Proctor is well-versed in the use of the e-bow and guitar mutes, which make the guitar sound like a variety of stringed instruments.
“More like Kottke, he composes genuine guitar ‘tunes’ distinct from one another in their melodic symmetry, stylistically unique in their achieving a lovely suspension between tonal haiku and technical prose.” – LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Haunting slide, spectacular writing, killer contrapuntal chops and sensitive articulation reconfirm that Proctor’s in a league with Peter Fingers and Martin Simpsons of the world.” – GUITAR PLAYER
“Proctor’s virtuoso fingerstyle technique and compositional abilities combine to render an original collection of pieces that very much lives up to its name… With his unique variety of tunings and spidery fingerings, he is a true pioneer of the contemporary fingerstyle form.” – SALT LAKE TRIBUNE
