Walter Strauss Doors 7pm ~ Show Starts 8pm  Tickets £5 Walter Strauss kicks global arse … encompasses Western classical and jazz-values, plus rootsy African and Americana with bewildering aplomb. This California guitar wizard's songs are full of the groove and fire of an African dance party, the dynamics and textures of a string orchestra, and the back-porch soul of American roots music. A composer and songwriter in diverse genres, he also translates music from other instruments to the guitar, resulting in mind-bending guitar renditions of the multi-layered music of the kora (a 21-stringed West African harp) that kora legend Toumani Diabate calls “inspirational”, and music of other far-flung instruments of the world.  Walter Strauss at Quay Arts Centre - Soutoukou
