An eclectic, unclassifiable adventure on strings
Multi-instrumentalist David Lindley performs music that redefines the word "eclectic." Well known for his many years as the featured player in the band of Jackson Browne, as a collaborator with the similarly inclined Ry Cooder, and as leader of his own band El Rayo-X, he performs a unique brand of electro-acoustic roots rock woven together with sounds from blues, bluegrass, folk, African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. The incredible array of stringed instruments he brings on stage is something to see in itself, and when you add in eye-popping clothing, uncanny vocal mimicry, and a somewhat demented sense of humor, you are ready for the one-of-a-kind Mr. Dave experience. David's interpretations of the music of the late Warren Zevon, his friend, rise to the level of profundity.
