I recently had the great pleasure to perform at The North American Guitar in London, UK. I greatly enjoyed the interview with esteemed guitar expert Michael Watts who is a wonderful player in his own right. We also recorded a couple of songs to compliment the interview in which Michael hand picked a couple of beautiful guitars for me to play from among the many, many amazing guitars in this collection.

Michael Manring is a bassist’s bassist, a veteran of dozens of Windham Hill record sessions and author of several solo albums that highlight his distinctive, virtuosic bass guitar style.

I will perform music from CASCADIA and engage in conversation with Echoes host John Dilberto.

"Tim Farrell is one of the most immediately melodic of the fingerstyle guitarists who came along in the wake of Leo Kottke and Windham Hill Records. Tim has been on the show many times before with his beautifully sculpted songs and deft picking techniques. He’ll play music from his wonderful new CD, Cascadia live on Echoes."
