What is One Guitar?
One Guitar is a radio show that highlights the music and the magic that is created and performed on a single guitar with no accompaniment. By playing guitar music in different genres, it is probably the longest running, still active music show of its kind anywhere. Only solo instrumental guitar music is aired on this show.

It's the birthday month of September ... and who doesn't know someone who was born in September? When I first began playing classical guitar, my son heard some songs being played many, many times either on recordings or by me trying to learn a song from records. I hope that some of these songs at the beginning of the show will bring him back to memories of those days - this being September 13 and his birthday.
Here is Hanna Yocute playing and giving some history about the Afro Cuban Lullaby:
...and since this week's show is mostly an all-Latin showcase AND a One Guitar+ show, here is the electrifying duo, Rodrigo y Gabriella:
