Zu Hause im Blues, Country und Folk spannt der Singer/Songwriter seinen musikalischen Bogen zwischen impulsivem Fingerstyle, untermalt von Mundharmonika oder Didgeridoo bis hin zu melodischen Balladen über das Leben, die Liebe und sozialkritische Themen der Gesellschaft.

Der Salzburger Gitarrist kreiert mit seinem Fingerpicking- und Slide-Stil sphärische Klänge und erdige Grooves, die an das Organische der Natur erinnern und direkt aus dem pulsierenden Kreislauf des Lebens zu kommen scheinen. Rhythmisch unterstützt wird er dabei von dem Cajon-Spieler und Schlagzeuger Michael Broeckl.

Chris May gibt Unterricht für Gitarre und Didgeridoo für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene und macht außerdem Musik Workshops für Kinder und Erwachsene. Bei Interesse einfach anmelden unter booking@chrismay.at

English:

While combining Blues, Folk, Country and Rock, Chris May always forges his musical bridge between Fingerstyle combined with his voice and often accompanied from Blues Harp, Didgeridoo and Stompbox. His songs include musical ballads about life, nature, love and sociocritical topics of our humanity. The songs remind of the organic side of nature, originating from the pulsating circulatory of life.

December 2015 Chris May released his debut album “way beyond” on which he colaborated with different guest musicians from all over the world.

With different open tunings, Chris creates spherical sounds and earthy atmospheres, by using several fingerpicking, slide styles and a range of various, exotic guitars. Instruments like the Weissenborn Lapsteel guitar, Dobro or the Banjo. Since January 2018 Chris formed a duo together with cajon player Michael Broeckl, which gives his unique style even more diversity and you can feel the groove of authentic and handmade blues & folk music. Enjoy an evening full of fine and extraordinary performances and take a ride through the land of handmade blues music.

Chris May is teaching also guitar and didgeridoo lessons/workshops for beginners and intermediates of all ages. Don’t hesitate to contact him via booking@chrismay.at
