"Sonido Alegre" which in Spanish means, "a joyful sound", represents original music with Spanish flavor and Flamenco flair. Guitarist and writer, Charles Guy was influenced by the several trips to the Riviera Nayarit in Mexico. His songs, composed on nylon string guitar, came to full fruition with the addition of Linda Powers' gypsy violin improvisations. Both musicians have a rich history of musical styles ranging from Charles' electric funk/rock guitar, steel string acoustic and nylon string guitar work in various projects; to Linda's bluegrass and old-timey fiddle music days, before moving on to the "swing style" of violin playing in her different gypsy swing bands. The confluence of these two musicians along with the vibrant percussion accompaniment of Mike Fitch, creates the unique and fascinating sound of this self-titled CD, "Sonido Alegre".
