The Brown Bag Concert Series continues at the Randolph County Community Arts Center this week with a performance by Tenney & Maynard at noon Wednesday.
Seth Maynard's years of training at Berklee College of Music are evident in his skillful and colorful guitar stylings. He performs as many as 150 shows each year at various regional venues and serves as an adjunct music faculty member at Davis & Elkins College.
He also owns and operates Lone Wolf Productions, where his recording/producing credits are numerous. Seth's latest CD release, "Osmosis," features his guitar-playing and songwriting in a modern jazz/fusion instrumental context.
The Brown Bag Concerts at the RCCAC will continue Wednesday with Tenney & Maynard.
Eclectic, emotional and hard-pounding acoustic guitarist J.B. Tenney can only be described as "Michael Hedges" meets "Massive Attack" in his original melodies and soulful improvisations. More than just acoustic guitar, it would be premature to put a label on his music without hearing for yourself. Check out his latest CD, "Far From Home," for a primer on his unique approach to acoustic guitar and looping.
Seth & JB (Tenney & Maynard) have combined forces to bring audiences a creative mix of jazz, folk, rock and improvisational guitar music that leans heavily on both of their influences. They have released the CD "Dichotomized" as a duo. JB and Seth will soon be unveiling a new rock 'n' roll trio (with drums), focusing on original material and unique arrangements of cover songs.
