Alan Shikoh

In the studio on the second floor of the Chattanooga Public Library, our guest this week is the gifted guitarist Alan Shikoh.

Alan will be playing a solo show in Barking Legs Theater on Dodds Avenue on Wednesday, November 8th. Writing about the upcoming concert, Bruce Kaplan noted that “Alan was rigorously trained in classical guitar, and that technique remains at the heart of his guitar playing. His musical interests have always been broad—he toured for several years with a metal band—and his primary project has been to apply his classical chops to jazz standards. While for most of us, the heart of jazz to explore its harmonic and melodic structures through improvisation, Alan’s investigations enrich these structures through highly imaginative compositional permutations. The results are absolutely beautiful.”
