Chris Proctor show a hit, listen to the audio stream

Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Chris Proctor played to a full house and the crowd was way into it. People were craning their necks and standing up to see how he was creating all those beautiful sounds as Chris performed two sets of his original compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes, even a cover of "Nights in White Satin," switching between 6 and 12 strings and using advanced guitar techniques such as false harmonics, fingerpicking while using an E-Bow and bottleneck slide. As always, great music from a true superstar of fingerstyle guitar.

Wisconsin resident Mark Porter delayed his trip home by a week to come see Chris, even bringing his parents along. They enjoyed it too. Turns out that Mark's a fingerstyle player as well, and I look forward to hearing some of his stuff too.

I've seen Chris many times over the 28 years I've known him. He never fails to amaze and delight the audience, and this show was especially sweet in our own little Folk Taj Mahal. Inspired by the room and the big crowd, Chris gave a stellar performance and won a lot of new fans.

Please feel free to leave a comment about this show.

Here's set 1 and set 2 in streaming audio format.


Chris Proctor in concert, Friday, April 24

Updated April 23: 32 people have reserved. Just a few great seats left...

Chris Proctor
Internationally Renown 6 and 12-String Guitarist, Performer and Composer

Chris Proctor won the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship back in 1982, and he hasn't looked back since. He's toured consistently and produced albums rooted in classic Americana, but delved also into folk, Celtic, jazz, pop and classical. He's one of the more revered figures on the acoustic guitar scene... Proctor's virtuoso fingerstyle technique and compositional abilities combine to render an original collection of pieces that very much lives up to its name. In the way Proctor explores melodies, and with his unique variety of tunings and spidery fingerings, he is a true pioneer of the contemporary fingerstyle form.

Ten CDs on Flying Fish, Windham Hill, Rounder and Sugarhouse Records, and his books, DVD's, videos, magazine articles, and endorsements all testify to Chris's standing as one of the elite fingerstyle composers, arrangers, and performers of the day.

"Proctor is...writing challenging compositions and playing them with such precision and clarity that they seem to sparkle... maintaining an evenness of tone and a cleanliness of fingering that will impress fellow guitarists even more than it does lay listeners."

- Washington Post
