O’s Notes: Before lessening to Brad’s first release of duets, we had never encountered the harp guitar, a combination of guitar with any number of unstopped strings as on a harp. Apparently the instrument has been around for more that 200 years! On Far Away From Everyday, Hoyt expands his band to include multiple configurations up to ten musicians. The program is a hodgepodge of pop, country and classical tunes with the addition of some improvisation. We enjoyed “Impossible Liaison” and “Elnora” most in a relaxing set.
