Listening to Matteo Palmer play the guitar, it’s hard to believe he’s only 17 years old. The steel-string virtuoso turns heads each time he brings his fingerstyle playing to the stage. Among his rapidly growing legion of fans is Grammy Award-winning producer Will Ackerman, the driving force behind Palmer’s stunning debut Out of Nothing. A reflection of the rising talent’s emotional depth and musical maturity, the album announces his arrival in a genre primarily populated by players two and three times his age. The fret-board wizard presents a salon-style show with the Hokum Bros. as part of the Mt. Philo Inn Artist Series.
