Established as a cult icon decades ago as a founding-member of the Sun City Girls, Sir Richard Bishop took on his royal prefix and began touring solo in 2005. A master guitarist whose improvisations and compositions effortlessly reflect the shadow worlds of India, the Middle East, North Africa, and American folk, Bishop’s penchant for crossing a range of styles yields a distinctive body of highly original work. A Bhutanese guitarist based in Asheville, Tashi Dorji’s revelatory style is unbound by tradition.
