Nick Ashwood (guitar, Tas), Bonnie Stewart (drums) and Peter Farrar (sax)
Julius Schwing (guitar, Tas) and Alf Jackson (drums, Tas)
Rhys Mottley (guitar) and Adam Gottlieb (guitar)

In this edition we focus on the exploratory guitar and Tasmania. Nick Ashwood has a passion for playing outdoors in southern Tasmania - we'll see what he sounds like up north with Peter Farrar and Bonnie Stewart. 
Julius Schwing, from Bruny Island and Alf jackson are part of an emerging Tasmanian scene of devoted improvisors. Do they play differently because of their locale?

Guitar brothers from the Splinter Orchestra, Adam Gottlieb and Rhys Mottley split away from their collective family to bring you unexpected sounds from an instrument that, for thousands of years, has been associated with virtuosity and rebellion.
Four ears twelve strings twenty fingers lots of sticks.

14 ears, 24 strings, lots of sticks, bows and one reed.
