Official Web Site - Kit Garoutte, guitarist

Fingerstyle jazz guitar Kit Garoutte is, in the words of the great Moe Dixon, "A guitar wizard with more than a sprinkle of magic!" One satisfied concert goer said to Kit after a recent show: "Wow, you brings something really unique to the table. Your left hand is fascinating to watch, your right hand is amazing! I want your right hand." To which Kit replied with a sly grin, "You can have it if you practice at least three hours a day!"

While you can hear plenty of the influence of great guitarists from many genres (Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Andres Segovia, Jim Hall, Wes Montgomery, Michael Hedges, Tommy Emmanuel) you will mainly hear a style all his own. It's jazz, pop, classical, blues, r & b, folk, funk, rock, new acoustic and more integrated into a personal flow of personal soulful communication to appeal to a broad listening audience. If you appreciate great guitar playing you'll appreciate Kit Garoutte.

Throughout his musical life Kit has continued to challenge himself and evolve to ever higher and more satisfying levels of performance. Long experience has not dulled the creative drive, and in fact you will hear that there is more joy, adventure and heart & soul in his playing han ever before. A lifetime of dedication to reach the deepest places within one's art will do that.
