Lenny Breau

Lenny Breau has been played on NTS shows including Light in the Attic, with Five O'Clock Bells first played on 2 August 2017.

Lenny Breau is widely recognised as one of the greatest guitarists that has ever lived. He excelled technically, being able to play bass lines, comp chords and pick out a melody at the same time.

As his career progressed his artistic approach to the guitar matured, and he was able to use his mastery of a number of styles, including jazz, country and flamenco, to produce a shimmering, emotionally charged soundscape.

His trademark was his use of rapid-fire harmonics and so-called 'harp-style'.
