Hal Merrill and Christopher Woitach Duo Performance

You may have heard of a pedal steel guitar before.  You may have even been at a music event and seen and heard one of these contraptions played.  And I bet the band was a blues band, or even more likely a country western band.  In fact you may have thought the instrument was, simply put, a "country instrument".  Well, I would like to share my story with you.  I have been playing jazz on the instrument for over 30 years, and now is your chance to see the real versatility of this instrument called pedal steel guitar.  I have recorded 4 CD's and they are available here, but you really have to SEE it to believe it!  I am playing in Portland, Oregon, on Friday, June 7 and the show is ABSOLUTELY FREE.  Here are the details:

HAL MERRILL AND CHRISTOPHER WOITACH DUO PERFORMANCE

It's a great combination of music.  We will play songs off of my CD's as well as a few of the progressive jazz standards. Seating is limited, so I recommend arriving early.
