Alexander is the solo project of guitarist and multi-instrumentalist David Shapiro (Kath
Bloom, Headroom, Center). Under the Alexander moniker he plays fingerstyle acoustic
guitar and banjo music. Drawing from a wide variety of guitar traditions, Shapiro has
arrived at a style and vocabulary of his own. His albums have drawn comparisons to
John Fahey and Robbie Basho who he cites as influences on his playing. Elizabeth
Cotten, Frantz Casseus, and Frank Proffitt are other major influences. As Alexander he
has toured extensively across the U.S. and abroad. He has shared bills with Mdou
Moctar, Loren Connors, Susan Alcorn, and many more. His self-titled LP is distributed
by Forced Exposure and he has additional releases on C/Site Recordings.

Thomas White is a local creator and MRC member. He recently screened a short film at Violet Crown and has been making beautifully intricate compositions using samples taken from vinyl records.
