Musician

Chris Alford

Mississippi native Chris Alford is a creative guitarist and composer who has performed in juke joints as well as concert halls around the country. Equally adept playing bebop, rock, free improvisation or blues, his unique guitar voice has no stylistic bounds, yet retains a distinctive personal approach. He is just as likely to galvanize an audience with peculiar, angular, electric flourishes as he is to allure with luscious, atmospheric harmonies. An openness to sound and collaboration, allows Alford to shape and guide the music in an organic flow. Since 2009, Alford has been active in a flourishing, creative music scene in New Orleans
