128 - Mike Dawes
British fingerstyle virtuoso MIKE DAWES demonstrates the techniques, tunings, technology, and none-to-serious stage banter that has made him a rising star in the steel-string community and beyond. In addition to being a solo artist, Mike is also lead guitarist for Rock Hall-of-Famer JUSTIN HAYWARD (MOODY BLUES), who often lets Mike open his concerts with a solo set. One result of having done these solo slots is Mike's new live album, SHOWS AND DISTANCING: LIVE IN THE USA. BONUS: Mike and Jude attempt what may be the first transatlantic jam on Prince’s “Purple Rain.” This episode is presented by BLUE MICROPHONES.
