Joel Harrison
Eclectic local six-stringer Joel Harrison presents his latest shrewdly curated showcase of outside-the-box guitar artistry. The Feb 4 kick-off event at ShapeShifter Lab features Anders Nilsson and Aaron Dugan, appearing as a duo; Marco Cappelli, pairing up with bassist James Ilgenfritz; and Ava Mendoza, performing alongside free-jazz drum luminary Chris Corsano. The series then moves to Rockwood Music Hall for a series of compelling multi-artist bills. Featured plectrists include Gyan Riley, Prasanna and David Fiucyznski (Feb 6); former Sonic Youth–er Lee Ranaldo and a guitar orchestra conducted by percussionist Adam Rudolph (Feb 7); Doug Wamble, Harrison himself, Adam Levy and Sheryl Bailey, and eclectic jazz vet Michael Gregory Jackson (Feb 8).
