Lots of fingerstyle acoustic guitarists uploading clips labelled: Thomas Leeb 2016台灣演奏會開場甄選; in anticipation of Leeb’s 2 April shows in Taiwan. Maybe to be considered as an opening act? (I’m not seeing any indication that it is a contest, but there are a lot of videos if you Google search “Thomas Leeb 2016台灣演奏會開場甄選”)  Thomas Leeb

許綺娟 Chi Chuan Hsu is the only artist I’ve seen that posted an original song for the Thomas Leeb thing, and this is a beautiful piece!  =D

Chi Chuan was at Eidos Cafe on Saturday:

Besides her solo performing and teaching, she is also a member of Rainy Berries 莓雨樂團 (on indefinite hiatus), and occasionally plays with AJ Fender in Electric and Wood 電與木的交錯. Here they are at Riverside Cafe last fall, playing one of Chi Chuan’s songs:

Follow the clip back to YT for more from both this set and Chi Chuan solo.  =D
