Always quick to take on new projects, guitar ace Bruce Forman wears many hats: performer, composer, producer, and educator. His dedication never falters. From his early career as a member of Richie Cole's Alto Madness, his seventeen albums as a bandleader, to performing on the soundtracks for three Clint Eastwood movies (Million Dollar Baby, Flags of Our Fathers and Hereafter), to leading Cow Bop, a 2014 Western Swing Hall of Fame inductee, Forman is up to the challenge. In his one-man stage play The Red Guitar, Forman showcases his theatrical side to dramatize the trials and tribulations of the artistic life. The Junkyard Duo is Forman and musical cohort Jake Reed exploring eclectic approaches and styles of improvisation and instrumentation.
