In the backyard of a Pittsburgh tenement, six characters gather to mourn the missing seventh: Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton, a blues guitarist who died with fame and celebrity just beyond his reach. Stitched with vibrant swatches of American blues lyrics and harmonized through a seven-piece ensemble, Seven Guitars explores the dissonant harmonies we sometimes find in the circular nature of hope, violence, fate, and justice.
