Adventures in Pedal Steel Guitar-Speedy West #18

December 3 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

For our 18th instalment of Adventures in Steel Guitar we pay tribute to the innovative steel guitar daredevil Speedy West. Speedy is most famous for his incredible instrumental recordings with fellow guitar shredder Jimmy Bryant but he was also an important session musician who played on recordings by Tennessee Ernie Ford, Ernest Tubb, Lorretta Lynn and Merle Travis, to name a few. He is also regarded as one of the first, if not THE first steel guitar player to attach pedals to his steel, forever changing what the instrument could do. We’ll be playing a lot of the Jimmy Bryant/Speedy West instrumental classics as well as some vocal tunes featuring Marin Patenaude, James Green, Kathleen Nesbit and Paul Pigat.

Scott Smith – steel guitar
Paul Pigat – guitar
Jeremy Holmes – bass
Liam MacDonald -drums
