Titan of the Telecaster Bill Kirchen Brings Resonant Twang
July 7 @ 8:00 pm
Bill Kirchen pays homage to the roots of country, blues, bluegrass, and Western swing as his resonant twang on stage at the Bull Run on July 7, with Special Guest Duke Levine.
A Kirchen performance recalls a half century of guitar legends and extends their brilliance into the new millenium. He’s played guitar on recordings and performances with Nick Lowe, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Ralph Stanley, Gene Vincent, Link Wray, Danny Gatton, Hoyt Axton and Elvis Costello.
He received a Grammy nomination for ‘Best Country Instrumental Performance’ in 2001. In 2002 he was inducted into the Washington Area Music Association Hall of Fame along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) and John Phillip Sousa as well as winning 10 additional Wammies including ‘Artist of the Year’ and ‘Musician of the Year.’ In previous years, he won ‘2000 Rock/ Roots Rock Instrumentalist of the Year,’ ‘Roots Rock Album’ (Raise A Ruckus) and ‘1999 Instrumentalist of the Year’ at the WAMA Awards, as well as being a multiple winner in 1997 and 1998, receiving ten awards, including ‘Songwriter of the Year.’
