Ken Perlman may be best known as a banjo-picker, but he is also a world-class fingerstyle guitarist and guitar teacher. He is adept at old-time blues, ragtime and just plain folk, but his specialty is Celtic and Southern U.S. fiddle tunes arranged for fingerpicking. These tunes are played with a sparkling attack and active bass line, which gives them a sound that has been described as being reminiscent of Renaissance- and Baroque-era lute music. He has written several guitar instruction books, including "Fingerstyle Guitar," "Advanced Fingerstyle Guitar," and "Fingerpicking Fiddle Tunes." He also writes guitar instructional columns for periodicals such as "Acoustic Guitar" and "Sing Out!" For more info go to www.kenperlman.com.
