Info for A Thing Made Of Rags

Hicks seamlessly closes off his first album “The Rag Trade” with “A Thing Made Of Rags”.

The fingerstyle virtuoso from England has made a well-rounded CD with mostly classic ragtimes, evergreens, and transcriptions of pieces by Duke Ellington, Bruce Cockburn, Scott Joplin, or arrangements, like the famous Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Johannes Brahms. For friends of fingerpicking, and ragtime in particular, this album is an acoustic delight. Once again, Hicks enchants his listeners with his filigree technique and the lightness of his performance, which is unrivaled in the guitar world.

Steve Hicks
The Rag is Back! The likeable Englishman has got a lot to offer guitar lovers. The man from the dreamy village of Barrow-upon-Soar is a highly regarded guitar builder, experienced teacher and versatile fingerstyle guitarist in one person. Both as a solo performer and in duet with Lynn Goulbourn, he shows his true class as a composer and musician with elegant timbre and tone. On his current solo recording “The Rag Trade”, Steve Hicks‘ stylish and fascinating renditions breathe new life into ragtime classics, country blues, jazz standards and songs from the Celtic tradition. His command of dynamics, interesting harmonic progressions and feeling for memorable melodies have become trademarks which make him one of the most interesting contemporary British fingerstyle virtuosos - a real insiders‘ tip for fans of high quality acoustic guitar music and well worth discovering.
