Subject: Guitarists - Guitarist
From: Betsy

Over the years I have seen and loved many great guitarists Diz Dizley , John James , Chris Newman and even watching Dave Newey blossom.
I haven't seen 'em all obviously so apologies to those who you may think deserve a mention also.
Anyway the point is I was in Madeira for a week this year and saw an extrordinary guitarist busking (sometimes with mates) and I just thought I would bring him to your attention. A guy called Juan Caldarado. watch the spelling !
Here's a start,sorry about the absence of a blue clicky ......

I hope he and his mates bring some pleasure into your guitar-playing life !!!!

I have asserted in the past that Chris Newman is the best American-style flatpicker in the world who isn't from the US, unless Beppe Gambetta is. And I refuse to make that call.

Of course, there could be any number that I've never heard.

I wasn't trying to start a contest - just saying that this (seemingly) unassuming guy gave a lot of pleasure.

I saw Chris in Crawley a few weeks ago and he was astounding. It's not just speed and technique with him - it's taste and elegance. And he's a very nice and unassuming guy as well.

If you get the chance to catch his playing, go for it.

here earl plays guitar and shows some sensitivity for a change, unlike his technically brilliant but boring banjo playing

I enjoyed the guy ,in fact I admired the guy and gave us allimmense pleasure.In spite of posts her,e I spelt the guys name correctly. I was merely trying to steer you away from spelling the guy's name as "Caldorado" which would have sent you on a completely different tack.

Which Chris Newman do you mean? There seem to be two on youtube.

As far as I'm concerned, it's not a contest, Betsy, it's a chance to find out about people you haven't heard, and listen to them(that's what Youtube is for!) Every time someone starts one of these "artist" thread, I google everybody that comes up and give them a listen. I'll bet I'm not the only one.   

For my input, If you're looking for great guitarists who are not American, Birelli Legrene is worth listening to.

I think I misunderstood you...I thought you were asking if someone knew the name of who the guitarist was....my mistake....and in my humble opinion, this guy should be in a first rate concert hall!

I was referring to Chris Newman who plays with Maire Ni Chathasaigh but it seems the "other one" is a well-respected player.

Betsy, he's quite good and apparently plays a nylon string guitar with an exceptionally large sound hole like the Maccaferri guitars that Django's accompanists use. He does a nice version of "Blue Bossa". His accompanist plays an interesting style that crosses bossa nova with a Spanish feel, like the Gypsy Kings.

It's quite entertaining and thanks for sharing it.

Hi Stringsinger , imagine - I was on holiday - my missus is going to drag me round the shops and fall upon these guys.They completely blew me away considering they were only buskers - the more I listened (and bought a CD )I realised how good he / they really are.You are quite right to point out how good the accompianing guitarists are - they're certainly not "strummers".

Hi Betsy,

There are unsung heroes who are talented and great all over the world. The music business only recognizes those who are promoted for business purposes.
There are Gypsy kids who play Django style in France who would blow you away.
I come across talented pickers all the time, who will never be recognized. Even those who are, such as the late Ted Greene who was a guitar phenomenon, was known to only guitarists and had the misfortune of not being an overt "entertainer". He made only one CD and the guitar playing is spectacular.

Not only the guitar world, but every aspect of the music field have brilliant performers of
whom you will never hear.

I remember when Woody Guthrie was not well known and "This Land is Your Land" was just another song.

You can actually make some money on the street playing and selling CD's. It's an alternative to the recording industry or promotion of music by the media.
