The term “virtuoso” is not used much these days when it comes to musical acts that tour outside of on-campus recital halls or similar venues. But Andy McKee is just that, a wonderful guitarist who can play a wide array of styles masterfully. Back in the day, high-end fingerpick guitarists like John Fahey and Michael Hedges filled the niche. Fahey died in 2001 and Hedges passed away in 1997, but pickers Leo Kottke and Muriel Anderson are still going strong. Read more about McKee in this week's Sound Advice.
Andy McKee performs Saturday at Taft Theatre (Ballroom). More info/tickets: tafttheatre.org .
