Ryan Francesconi + Kadialy Kouyate

Music, Jazz
Bewitching Seattle-based steel string guitarist Francesconi has enjoyed a higher profile since his work on Joanna Newsom's 'Have One On Me' LP. Yet it's his own mesmerising solo guitar pieces that weave Americana, Spanish, classical and folk into a subtly beautiful whole that make him such a must-see live. Senegalese Kora virtuoso/singer Kadialy Kouyate provides equally transfixing support.
