Born Richard R Baker IV in Richmond, Virginia, ‘Duck’ is unique among jazz guitarists in that his repertoire spans the entire history of music from ragtime through swing to modern masters like Thelonious Monk and Herbie Nichols and into free improvisation. His devotion to American music, also encompasses more traditional forms like blues, gospel, Appalachian music, and its Scots-Irish ancestry. Duck’s extensive discography reflects the diversity and quality of his musical talent, as do collaborations with the likes of bluesmen Charlie Musselwhite and Jerry Ricks, bluegrass’s Tim O'Brien and Dan Crary, traditionalists Ali Anderson and Brian MacNeil, new music icon John Zorn, rock legend JJ Cale, Irish fiddler Kieran Fahy, and guitarists Jamie Findlay, Woody Mann, and Ken Emerson. A chance to see a true original in the flesh. Don’t miss it. Duck Baker performs at the Linenhall Arts Centre on Monday April 20 at 8pm. Booking is advised.
