Guitar Power: Interview with Mary Halvorson

18. August, 2017


Guitarist Mary Halvorson will perform at XX1st Jazz Fest Sarajevo this year as a member of Thumbscrew ensemble, along with bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Tomas Fujiwara.

In an interesting interview for Guitar Power, she talks about learning and dealing with music, meaning Jimi Hendrix has had to her playing guitar, and about improvisation and jazz that she “accidentally” uncovered.

This self-taught 37-year-old artist cooperates with musicians such as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, or Marc Ribot and has appeared on more than 70 albums, as band leader, ensemble member or guest musician.
