Greensboro, NC-based guitarist Matt Northrup comes from the distinctly louder spectrum of folks in the solo guitar field. He has commented before on the fact that people don’t always expect “solo guitarist” to represent quite the wall of sound that his performances tend to create, but I suspect he’s OK with the added mystery. One of the highlights of Hopscotch Music Festival for me is always the chance to catch up on North Carolina talent that I haven’t been exposed to before, and seeing Northrup was high on my list. In the dim and quiet confines of Vintage 21, he more than rewarded all of our interest with a multi-part piece, “The Unwinding”, that hasn’t yet been committed to recorded form. What is clear is that Northrup is one to watch among the latest guitar talents. Don’t miss him.

I recorded this set with a soundboard feed and Schoeps MK41 microphones which provided a little bit of ambiance. The quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
