LIVE MUSIC: Charles Berthoud at The Gig Shack
August 30, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
British bassist, Charles Berthoud (pronounced BEAR-too), is changing the way we think about the bass guitar. As one of the most exciting and versatile new bass players on the world stage, his compositions are both moving and beautiful, showing off a technique that he is helping to bring to the mainstream. Already being recognized as one of the masters of the two-handed tapping technique, he plays the bass like a piano, accompanying himself with multiple parts. A classically trained pianist and multi-instrumentalist, Charles uses contemporary guitar techniques to play astonishingly fast, almost flamenco-like passages. Mastering his instrument through years and countless hours of practicing, Charles compositions range from the drama of a_film_score_to_the_peaceful_tranquility_of_a_piano_sonata.
