Entitled The Nebraska Project, this 25th anniversary celebration of the classic Bruce Springsteen album features on one stage a distinctive roster of singer-songwriters, bands and instrumentalists. The Nebraska Project opens this year's New York Guitar Festival.
Performing their own arrangements of one of the ten Nebraska songs are Laura Cantrell, Dan Zanes, Vernon Reid, Mark Eitzel, Michelle Shocked, Meshell Ndegeocello, The National, Chocolate Genius, Marc Ribot, Martha Wainwright, Jesse Harris, Kevn Kinney, Lenny Kaye, Gary Lucas and Harry Manx.
"Sometimes a recording artist's demo versions of songs are more brilliant than the final studio product. Nebraska is one of those moments in music history," said David Spelman, Artistic Director of the New York Guitar Festival. In 1982, Springsteen chose to release the demo versions of his newest songs, recorded with only acoustic or electric guitar, harmonica, and vocals, as his sixth album, Nebraska. The rest is history.
The New York Guitar Festival was founded in 1999 by musician and producer David Spelman to broaden the public's appreciation for the guitar. The Festival fosters emerging talent, supports innovative collaborations among outstanding nationally known artists, and commissions new works. Look for 60 guitarists, performing 20 shows at 7 venues between January 14 and February 8, 2006, including the ever-popular Guitar Marathon, performances by Bill Frissell, Daniel Lanois, and much, much more.
