Echoes Playlist

William Eaton is a Sedona-based guitarist and guitar luthier who has invented several stringed instruments that not only have an amazing sound, but are works of visual art. He's created hybrid instruments like the Koto-harp Guitar, 26 stringed guitar and the 31 stringed, O'ele'n Strings and the Lyre-Harp Guitar. They all look like lost artifacts of a highly evolved alien culture. Eaton deploys his instruments in an exotic world chamber fusion that draws its rhythms from the Middle East and Africa, its melodies from India and Appalachia and its atmosphere right out of the desert southwest where Eaton lives. He's recorded albums with Native flute icon R. Carlos Nakai and has several solo CDs on the Canyon label. His latest is a double CD called SPARKS & EMBERS. We talk with William Eaton and his ensemble about alien strings, global music and southwestern visions.
