“It was a Chet Atkins album. I can’t remember the title of it, but I remember that the first song on the album was `Swedish Rhapsody.’

I can’t remember whether I already owned a guitar at that point or whether I just had a ukulele, but I’ll tell you, I had never ever heard anybody play guitar like that before. That was some serious guitar playing.”

Jazz guitar great Larry Coryell teams up with blues guitarist Murali Coryell for a rare father-and-son performance at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock at 9pm on Saturday (August 4). Tix are $30.
