ALEX DE GRASSI
"...intricate finger-picking technique with an uncanny gift for melodic invention." --Billboard
As one of the first artists on Windham Hill, Alex de Grassi established himself as an innovator and virtuoso of acoustic guitar. His early recordings of original music and arrangements of folk, jazz, and world music have influenced a whole generation of fingerstyle guitar players. His recordings from 1978 to 1998 are considered classics of the genre.
Alex’s thirty years of international touring include performances at Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Montreux Jazz Festival and numerous guitar festivals. Alex has been commissioned by Acoustic Guitar Magazine to compose a concerto for steel-string guitar and string orchestra. He has been a frequent guest teacher at the National Summer Guitar Workshop, the University of Milwaukee, the Interlochen Institute, and the prestigious Berklee School of Music.
Along with his own label, Alex is a distinguished artists on Blue Coast Records with one of the most popular recordings of the last few years. Blue Coast Special Events are recorded live in the studio without headphones always revealing the best performers. Along with his acoustic guitar recordings, this Special Event showcases Alex’s harp guitar, an instrument of extreme difficulty and incredible resonance.
”....His husky baritone is an anchor in a turbulent sea of life. With each successive listen, it seems to get richer and more lush." -- Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in NYC
What Keith Greeninger brings to music is his authenticity. There are no barriers between Keith, his music and his audience. This bond stems from Keith’s philosophy that music is a gift and a medicine to take part in together. Along with his skills as a seasoned performer, these things combine make Keith the perfect Blue Coast Artist.
Keith’s masterfully crafted tunes earned him the top songwriting awards at the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival, The Kerrville Folk Festival and The Napa Valley Folk Festival. He has toured the USA extensively for over two decades performing at Folk and Americana festivals while appearing on countless national radio shows.
As one of Blue Coast Records first and most loved artists, Keith appears on 2 SACD collections and several Special Events. His song “Looking for a Home” has been used by dozens of audiophile manufacturers as a test for acoustic sounds. The high resolution audio division of Sony featured Keith in one of their brochures.
