Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played and features at The Source Arts Centre on Thursday, September 26th (8pm).

Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical his vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they’re hearing just the one musician, in real time.

While most great guitarists would be grateful to leave behind a legacy of classic recordings, fine performances and blistering technique, US-born Preston Reed has gone a world further than that by essentially inventing an entirely new way of playing the guitar. The Source Arts Centre is thrilled to invite this guitar legend back for another spellbinding show. Preston Reed doesn’t need a band. He is the band.

Don’t miss Preston Reed at The Source Arts Centre on Thursday, September 26th (8pm). Tickets: €16 (€12 concession). Box office: 0504 90204. Online: thesourceartscentre.ie.
