Peter Biedermann is an instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ who has been composing and performing for over 35 years and will be appearing for the sixth time at Forbes Library.

The architecture of the music is melodic and rhythmic, combining compositional structure and improvisation that embraces the influences of the last 50+ years of finger style acoustic guitar playing. Fans of artists such as Davey Graham, John Fahey, Alex de Grassi, Leo Kottke, Ralph Towner and Michael Hedges will enjoy this music.

CDs will be for sale after the performance. Please go to www.peterbiedermann.com for more information.
