ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2003 Western Canadian Music Award Nomination for Outstanding Instrumental Recording.

"Once released from the constraints of standard guitar tuning a player with good ears and hands can make amazing music, something Vancouver guitarist Les Finnigan has clearly figured out. His fingers don't just play, they dance."
- John P. McLaughlin, The Province, September 17, 2002.

The steel string acoustic guitar is a fairly new instrument considering that it is only about a hundred years old. It has been very popular as a rhythm or accompaniment instrument, but in comparison, few people have used it exclusively as a solo instrument. I feel fortunate to be one of the musicians writing new original compositions for solo guitar. Many great people, places and things have been influential in my life and they are represented in the music on "Steel String Portraits".
- Les Finnigan
