This CD has its roots in the first Newport Guitar Festival, which took place in 2006. I had been invited by Rochester NY luthier Bernie Lehmann to go along for the fun and maybe play a little concert on his guitars as part of the festival. I said, “Sure, why not. Sounds like fun.” Thus began a journey into the world of steel string guitar luthiery, about which I had known very little.

On this recording you will hear ten different handmade guitars (including one antique), some made with traditional materials, others using nontraditional woods and in some cases radical new designs.

From a review by Just Jazz Guitar’s Dr. Dave Walker:
Kinloch Nelson clearly has an excellent ear for guitars, and that is good news for all guitar lovers. His new album Kinloch Plays Tunnel 13 and other Petros Guitars is a veritable showcase for the beautiful instruments of Bruce and Matt Petros. [Read more.]

From a review by The Daily Freeman’s David Malachowski:
“... But what folks forget is that the guitar can function beautifully on its own (without a vocalist), as it provides the means to play melody, chords and bass lines. Kinloch Nelson can do just that, he is an acoustic solo finger-tyle guitarist from the city of Rochester, N.Y., who has been performing for more than 40 years. This record is formed around a guitar, one with a history.” [Read more.]

“I bought your CD at the Cantab in Cambridge a few months ago. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy it. The straightforward simplicity of the arrangements, and the tone you elicit from the guitars make for a subtly virtuosic performance.

“I’ve always appreciated someone who could make me listen to and appreciate a song that had been done to death. I thought I’d never want to hear ‘Wichita Lineman’ again, but you changed my mind.

“Thanks for one of the tastiest CD’s I’ve heard in quite a while.”
