From Reverbnation … About Chris … Leo Kottke, Al Di Meola, and Clarence White are just a few guitar players that come to mind when you hear Chris Padgett play. This young road-hog has been touring nationwide the last five years with powerhouse duo, The StereoFidelics, and has performed well over 1,000 shows in that time. It’s hard to believe someone so young and not classically trained can have such ingenuity and craftsmanship over his instrument. Classical, Flamenco, American Primitivism, and folk… syncopated finger picking style, thrash flat-picking, and a unique voice; always an amazing performance and a real treat in a world of so many synonymous solo performers.
