With a career spanning 25 years, Charlie Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative composer, imaginative bandleader and all-around great guitarist. He has worked with Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, D’Angelo and numerous other artists, and is widely considered the authority on the seven- and eight-string guitar. Hunter is a marvel to watch perform, due to his ability to simultaneously play tasteful bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms. He last performed at SMF in 2013 with drummer Scott Amendola, and returns with this powerful, bluesy trio format which features Lucy Woodward, a captivating singer who has worked with Pink Martini, Snarky Puppy and a variety of other artists and ensembles.
“…incredibly swift with technique and open to the spontaneity of improvisation.”
