Music: Glenn Roth CD release show, Thurs., Oct. 15, at 8 PM

Glenn_Roth_Hipsta_052815_WebGuitarist Glenn Roth plays a CD release show at Best Video Performance Space on Thursday, Oct. 15. The music starts at 8 PM and the cover is $5.

Roth will be releasing his new CD “Welcome Home.”

Glenn Roth is a fingerstyle guitarist, his thumb riding the bassline and the melody driving all. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it’s really just one guy, ten flying fingers, one instrument. All instrumental, Roth’s songs suggest moods and narratives that compel the listener to fill in the details.

Roth has released three CDs to date: Innovations (2005), Busker (2006), and Into the Unknown (2010). His original compositions have been hailed as “sheer virtuosity” (20th Century Guitar magazine) and “delicate, accomplished solo acoustic guitar work” (PLAY: New Haven Arts & Entertainment Weekly). Roth released a new “Another Dimension EP” in April of 2014.
