About the album
Acoustic Guitars are great if you need cheering up. They play with high energy and enthusiasm. Give their new cd to your mother, your sweetheart, your child or anyone else you care for. Everybody - even the tone-deaf - can go on a journey with Acoustic Guitars. No one’s frightened away. That’s one of their singular qualities - even though the music is actually highly complicated to play, it still attracts all kinds of listeners.
And eager specialists such as guitar players and percussionists or people who are particularly interested in acoustic music, Spanish music, Indian music, rhythmic music and, not least, Danish music, can also set out to explore the cd.
Acoustic Guitars have been together since 1985, where the three guitarists sounded out audience interest by playing in the streets. The band, with one or two percussionists added, soon became popular in the Danish clubs, and they have also toured Canada, Germany and Norway with great success.
The first album (“Acoustic Guitars”, Stunt Records, STUCD 18703) was recorded in 1986- 87, with Ole Theill on tablas. In 1989-90 “Gajos in Disquise” was recorded (Stunt Records, STUCD 19001), again with Ole Theill and this time also with Klavs Nordsø. These two recordings and “Out of the Blue” mainly consist of original compositions.
Acoustic Guitars means optimistic music played by unusually competent musicians.
