Susan Alcorn
"And I Await the Resurrection of the Pedal Steel Guitar (Excerpt)"
Playing at: The Stone
(Ave. C and 2nd St., East Village)
Get: Tickets ($10 at door) | Directions

Susan Alcorn began playing guitar at an early age, but it wasn't until she crossed paths with blues god Muddy Waters that she turned her attention to the pedal steel guitar. A solo performer, Alcorn has been lauded for her distinct sound, which fuses avant-garde classical music with free jazz, Indian ragas and folk music from around the globe. This excerpt, taken from an ambitious 16-minute composition, demonstrates Alcorn's virtuosic talent and original style.

This music gets inside your clothes, even inside your body and caresses. And, if the summary didn't say this was played on pedal steel, I would not have guessed.
