While there's a plethora of gifted guitarists in Denver, there's only a handful that enter the realm of extraordinary, virtuosos who are widely regarded amongst critics, their peers and by fans. It's a short list filled in by folks like Dave Beegle, Robert Eldridge and Neil Haverstick, among others. You can safely add Trace Bundy to the list. Bundy, a Boulder-based axeman, just earned nods as one of the Best Fingerstyle Guitarists of the Year and Most Promising New Talent by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, the foremost authority on all things acoustic. Check out Bundy's unique playing style after the jump and then catch him live on Friday, March 27, at the Oriental Theater.
