Renowned and awarded for his unique amalgamation of acoustic and electric guitar and how he blends diverse musical styles and inspirations into a distinctive sound all his own, Adrian Legg has been hailed as “one of the wizards” of the guitar (Philadelphia Enquirer), “an adventurer” (Newsday) and “a genius” (Los Angeles Reader). In addition to his distinguished career as a live performer, recording artist and composer, he is an innovator in guitar design and amplification technology, an instructor, photographer, writer and author, witty and engaging between song onstage raconteur, and an at large commentator for National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, among other gifts, pursuits and interests. It’s no wonder that What’s Up magazine hails London-born Legg as “the greatest British import since Newcastle Brown Ale.”

His most recent studio recording, Dead Bankers, is garnering rave reviews. Peghead Nation wrote, “Dead Bankers is at its core an instrumental country-rock album played on solo guitar. Sure, tunes like ‘Waltz for Leah’ display a Celtic tinge (with beautiful harp-style lines achieved by alternating fretted and open strings), and ‘The Oily Gull’ could be part of a spy-movie soundtrack, but there’s a foot-stomping vibe throughout, with fuzzy, tremolo-laden tones and power-chord-fueled rhythms laying a foundation for sneaky licks and hummable melodies.”
