Michael Hedges, ‘Two Days Old’.

Sometimes it can be overwhelming, to contemplate just how much great music has been inspired by Michael Hedges’ pioneering efforts.

But, regardless of that, and regardless of the continued technical development that players are now demonstrating…there’s no denying that there was only one Michael Hedges.  I’d forgot how chillingly moving this clip of “Two Days Old”, from his last show at the Varsity Theatre in Palo Alto (before it closed), is.

Mesmerising.
