Interviews with Guitarists
Over the years we have been lucky enough to meet and talk with many great musicians. In these exclusive interviews with guitar players, musicians and songwriters, we ask the artists where they got their start and what is their approach to touring and recording.
Andrew DuBrock, one of the best when it comes to guitar tutorial books, discusses the challenges and rewards of learning fingerstyle guitar playing.
House concerts are becoming a viable option for working musicians. Home Routes discusses the basics of house concerts for both would-be artists and hosts.
Tom Hess discusses how he joined the band Rhapsody of Fire as well as their upcoming album and what it’s like to be part of a world-wide tour.
FODfest, a series of concerts that use the healing power of music to bring people of all backgrounds together, is en route to Israel and the West Bank region in October 2010. Todd Mack, founder and organizer of the event, takes a few moments to discuss the tour as well as the new “FODfest in the Schools” program that has been launched this past year.

With FODFest starting up in ten days, I thought this would be a great time to check in on Todd Mack, a Berkshire based recording artist and producer, and find out what’s going on with this year’s festival honoring the life of Daniel Pearl. Plus we get to hear about some of the other music Todd’s working on.
