Tonight! An Evening with Preston Reed and Special Guest Usman Riaz at the BPC

Preston Reed's audacious re-invention of acoustic guitar playing has influenced a generation of young guitarists, including Pakistani multi-instrumental composer Usman Riaz. They will be reunited for one night only for the first time since their hit performance at TEDGlobal in Edinburgh, Scotland. Using the two-handed integrated percussive acoustic technique he pioneered in 1980s and ‘90s, Preston Reed fuses chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs, and polyrhythmic percussion that integrates the breathtaking potential of the guitar body.
