About Michael Hedges
Known to many as a new age artist because of his association with the Windham Hill label, Michael Hedges could be more accurately described as a progressive guitarist in the tradition of Leo Kottke or even Jimi Hendrix. Revered for his virtuoso playing and revolutionary approach to the instrument, Hedges became a cult hero to legions of acoustic guitar fanatics, despite his later, less-successful attempts at vocal music. His life and career cut short by a car accident in 1997, Hedges deserves to be remembered as one of the true guitar innovators of the 20th century.
