A confluence of brilliant musical artists will converge at 142 Throckmorton Theatre to help Bay Area guitarist Todd Boston launch his extraordinary new album, Touched By The Sun. Legendary artists, also featured on the album, Snatam Kaur, Will Ackerman and Michael Manring will perform along with Boston in an evening of acoustic world music not to be forgotten.
Even more so than his award-winning debut album ‘Alive’, which garnered critical acclaim and extensive radio airplay, his new release, ‘Touched By The Sun’ incorporates intricate ensemble playing and a diversity of world music influences to create a sound that is innovative and intriguing. The production on this CD is a work of art in itself, although not surprising coming from the studio of Will Ackerman, an undisputed master of recording and producing acoustic music.
