Songs that guitars sing, and a guitarist who played with THE Tommy Emmanuel when he was just 11.

This is episode 34 of Caffe Lena: 60 Years of Song. Thank you to Sarah for compiling the list of artists and songs for the feature.

With a hollow neck and Hawaiian origin, the Weissenborn guitar is an unusual instrument.Ed Gerhardwas captivated at first sound in the 90’s. He once said when you realize you sit and make the sound yourself, you’re hooked for life. He doesn’t write instrumental songs, he wrote songs that guitars can sing.

Quentin Callewaert was a typical kid who loved music, except that he was playing with the great Tommy Emmanuel at 11 years old! His passion followed him through high school while he ran on the cross country team and wrote songs with his dad and now he is studying guitar in college.
