LABOR DAY PARTY with SIR RICHARD BISHOP

SIR RICHARD BISHOP

Formerly the guitarist for the legendary Sun City Girls, Richard Bishop released his first solo record ("Salvador Kali") in 1998 on John Fahey's esteemed Revenant label under the moniker SIR RICHARD BISHOP. Since then he has released albums on a variety of labels: "Improvika," "Elektronika Demonika," and "While My Guitar Violently Bleeds" (Locust Music), "Fingering the Devil" (Southern Records, UK), "Polytheistic Fragments" and "The Freak of Araby" (Drag City), and many more. His most recent LP, "Hypostasis: A Work in Three Parts," is now available through the VDSQ label as part of their Solo Acoustic Series. One can perhaps recognize the influences of Django Reinhardt, Jimmy Page, and Ravi Shankar throughout his playing, though he has fused these and other influential elements into his own unique style. This appearance marks his first time back in Louisville in over five years!

TASHI DORJI

A Bhutanese guitarist now residing in Asheville, NC, TASHI DORJI makes meticulously crafted sounds that conjure spirits, wrestle demons, and tame wild beasts. As beautiful as they are cerebral, his acoustic works are reminiscent of Derek Bailey's free improvisations, flamenco and John Fahey's Americana. This concert will be TASHI DORJI's Louisville debut!

PETE FOSCO

For the past decade PETE FOSCO has been exploring and celebrating the sonic potential of amplified electric guitars and the imaginary worlds they create. He graduated from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati in 2004 with a BFA in Electronic Media Production. Since then his solo and collaborative work has been released by labels such as Digitalis Recordings, Reverb Worship, Holy Cheever Church, Gift Tapes, Dead Pilot, Calypso Hum, and the Greenup Industries imprint that he runs from home with his wife Heather. He has toured throughout the Midwest and Northeast United States, and in Iceland. He has shared bills with many of his long-time inspirations and heroes including Charalambides, MV+EE, Six Organs of Admittance, Baby Dee, C. Spencer Yeh, Byron Westbrook, Barn Owl, Circuit des Yeux, Caboladies, Metal Rouge, and many others. His compositions are usually at least partially if not mostly improvised, blending extended and traditional guitar techniques and drawing equal inspiration from classic 90s psychedelia like Flying Saucer Attack and Spiritualized, film soundtracks, and many varieties of free-form, improvised and sacred musics. FOSCO is a native of Cincinnati, OH and currently resides in Covington, KY.
