Oft-touring Pittsburgh fingerstyle guitarist Daryl Shawn joins noted local acoustic musician Matthew Sabatella at Luna Star Cafe on Sunday, October 22.

An alumnus of Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music who went on to develop his craft during five years in Oaxaca, Mexico, Shawn combines his taste for unusual chords with the guitar-thumping techniques of flamenco and rhythms culled from African music to create an eclectic, energetic mix. Guitar International magazine has noted that he "possesses the ability to take a nylon-string guitar and make it roar with dynamic precision and raging power." Fans of Kaki King, Tommy Emmanuel and Rodrigo y Gabriela will find much to enjoy.

Matthew Sabatella, a member of the Rambling String Band, opens the evening with a set of music on guitar and banjo culled from his broad repertoire of traditional American folk songs and old-time music.
