LOCATION: Cascade Draft House
Richlands native Ryan Ward needs technical gizmos like clouds need water. A guitarist extraordinaire, he’s an acrobat when he fingerpicks.
Join Ward’s vibe when he encamps in Spence Flagg’s Cascade Draft House in Bristol, Tennessee, on Friday, June 25. Listen to Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham play guitar. Add snippets of Chet Atkins and the Eagles. Therein lies the style of Ryan Ward.
But he’s no copycat. Influenced by the aforementioned wizards of the guitar, Ward’s clean and effervescent style emerges from within his EP and full-length album. Tunes including his breezy “Misty Mountain Morning” and bouncy “Gone” jibe well with Ward’s occasional covers from the catalogs of Buckingham and Atkins. The experience of hearing Ryan Ward play guitar transports listeners to his world. – Tom Netherland, Bristol Herald Courier
