Echoes Playlist
In the tradition of great acoustic music drawn from the heartland of America Echoes presents a special Thanksgiving program featuring Vermont-based guitarist Will Ackerman. Ackerman was the founder of Windham Hill records in 1977 and he, along with players like Alex De Grassi and Michael Hedges, launched the acoustic guitar renaissance of the 1980s. Ackerman has just released a a new CD, RETURNING (Mary's Tree-Decca) on which he re-records his best-loved tunes from the past 27 years. Joined by guitarist David Cullen, Will Ackerman comes into the Echoes living room, carves the turkey and then carves some of his beautiful guitar melodies, live on an Echoes Thanksgiving.
