Michael Hedges: Savage Myth Guitar (1990)
Michael Hedges played "savage myth" guitar, one of his names for an aggressive style of acoustic guitar playing that won him a loyal following beginning with his debut, Breakfast in the Field. In 1990, Hedges talked with us about his Trans-Trem guitar and his new album at the time, a concept work called Taproot.
Michael Hedges's Guitar Transformations (1996)
Michael Hedges was the critically acclaimed Windham Hill guitarist who in 1996 released what we consider his best album, Oracle. At that time, Hedges talked about the influences on his new music, ranging from yoga to chants of Oklahoma. He took us inside the music of Oracle, revealing the tone poem designs and metaphysical sources.

In the fall of 1994, Windham Hill recording artist Michael Hedges visited the Echoes living room for a concert of freewheeling, high energy acoustic guitar.
Another Living Room Concert with Michael Hedges (1996)
Windham Hill guitar virtuoso Michael Hedges returned to the Echoes Living Room in 1996, pulled up a chair and played music from his then-new album, Oracle. His selections included a tune from Frank Zappa and an old Hedges favorite from his first solo album, Breakfast in the Field. In this performance, Michael Hedges brought his idiosyncratic guitar technique to bear on some of his most beautiful compositions.
