Live streaming concert from Mighty Fine Guitars ala Stevie Coyle!

Walter Strauss

Hello Walter Strauss music fans! It's so delightful to know that you can stream live the concert Walter will be performing from Stevie Coyle's dream guitar store, Mighty Fine Guitars. Here's a note from Stevie...

It's Wally!
You folks that haven't heard him, well, you've never heard anything like him. A truly unique and world-class voice in acoustic guitar. But don't believe just little ol' me ...
“Walter Strauss brings a whole new sonic dimension to the fingerstyle guitar scene with his signature West African influenced technique, heavily syncopated rhythms, and richly textured lines. Lyrical, totally grooving, and always from the heart, Walter is a true original and one of the most distinctive players today!” Alex de Grassi, Grammy nominated American guitarist.
– “A fine player with a voice of his own in the world ... beautiful, fluid and sophisticated.” Martin Simpson, British guitar luminary.
