Ziggy McNeill

FINGERSTYLE/INDIE/ROOTS aus Freshwater, seit 2013



Short Description:
Ziggy's show is very energetic and passionate. Using a loop pedal, he creates a unique sound incorporating virtuosic guitar solos, fingerpicking, percussive sounds and vocals. Ziggy's sound is a mix of styles mashed together with an influence from Rodrigo y Gabriela, Tommy Emmanuel and Xavier Rudd. He often plays his guitar blind and backwards behind his head as he plays. As a busker by trade, Ziggy is no stranger to an audience and he certainly knows how to captivate one.
