Globetrotting Guitar from Pittsburgh

October 17, 2017

Oft-touring Pittsburgh fingerstyle guitarist Daryl Shawn appears at Irregardless Cafe. An alumnus of Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music who went on to develop his craft during five years in Oaxaca, Mexico, Shawn combines his taste for unusual chords with the guitar-thumping techniques of flamenco and rhythms culled from African music to create an eclectic, energetic mix. Guitar International magazine has noted that Shawn "possesses the ability to take a nylon-string guitar and make it roar with dynamic precision and raging power", while Songlines magazine describes Shawn as "the man who can make his guitar sound like anything". Fans of Kaki King, Tommy Emmanuel and Rodrigo y Gabriela will find much to enjoy. Please visit for much more information, including streaming audio and a full biography.
