Laurence Juber Releases 'Touchstones—The Evolution of Fingerstyle Guitar'

Grammy-winning guitarist and composer Laurence Juber has released a new album, Touchstones—The Evolution of Fingerstyle Guitar.

Explaining the album’s concept, Juber in a statement: “This album differs from my other recordings in that it’s based on a historical perspective of what became known in the 20th Century as fingerstyle guitar. While I was doing some events with the C.F. Martin Company, as well as working with various school music programs, I found myself delving into the history of the guitar, from the Renaissance period onward. The record started out as a research project that evolved into a transcription music book, and then it took on its own life. Finally, I said to myself, ‘Hey, this might make a cool album!’”
