Throughout his career, British guitarist Adrian Legg
has earned the highest praise from the media.
"'Legg is, above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility,' observes the St. Petersburg Times
. 'Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra.' Guitar Player
heralds how he 'combines a sublime melodic sense with a mighty right-hand groove, creating pretty music with rhythmically aggressive undercurrents,' while Acoustic Guitar
notes that 'the guitar is the most versatile instrument in the world, and nobody demonstrates this better than Adrian Legg.' But the Atlanta Journal-Constitution
likely summed up his impact on listeners best when it exclaimed, 'Mr. Legg's compositions, with their narrative melodies and nakedly emotive tones, offer an antidote to the guitar-hero syndrome.'
For Legg, the fulcrum and essence of his creativity is in live performance. 'Playing live is the whole point,' he stresses. 'Everyone makes a journey, an effort; we all come together — me, the audience, the people who run the venue — to share this wonderful, universal, human emotional interaction. This is where music lives.'"
