Guitar virtuoso and Dave Matthews Band
collaborator to perform at URI

KINGSTON, R.I. -- September 20, 2000 -- A renowned guitar virtuoso and frequent collaborator with the Dave Matthews Band will soon be filling the University of Rhode Island's Edwards Auditorium with his unique sound. As part of his first-ever national solo acoustic tour, Tim Reynolds will perform on September 26 at 7 p.m. in Edwards Auditorium on URI's Kingston Campus. General admission is $8 and student admission is $5.

Reynolds became acquainted with Dave Matthews when the two musicians were beginning their careers. In fact, Reynolds turned down an opportunity to join the popular Dave Matthews Band, instead opting for a solo career. Although he does often record and perform with the band, he has established his own identity, with such works as his recent CD, See Into Your Soul.

Reynolds has been lauded as a master of every conceivable guitar technique, including the expressiveness of the acoustic guitar. He uses the guitar to create a unique harmonic, melodic, and percussive sound. His talents include combining the simplicity of an acoustic guitar with the use of electronic devices to create a hypnotizing effect and his trademark ability of improvising, often alternating between intimacy and hard play.

He has also mastered the sitar, the 12-string guitar, bass, and electric guitar.

Reynolds has appeared on VH1's "Storytellers" with Dave Matthews, and has traveled with and recorded the band's multiplatinum CD, "Live at Luther College."

Reynolds is brought to the University by the Student Entertainment Committee.
