Doug Wartman with Special Guests Birdie Busch & Former Belle
Guitarist Doug Wartman performs at TileWorks. Doug will be playing solo original music on acoustic, electric and lap steel guitar, debuting new material as well as celebrating the release of his single "Monarch." Sharing the stage will be special guests Birdie Busch and Former Belle.
Doug Wartman is an instrumental guitarist from Glenside, PA. An alumnus of Berkeley School of Music, Doug has released several independent records and eps of live and studio performances over the past twenty years. Doug’s passionate, creative, and evocative instrumental approach to composition often utilizes his talent for rhythm and ambience, creating immersive pieces with both classical and experimental elements.
Birdie Busch makes and records independent music from her home base of Philadelphia. Critics from American Songwriter to Village Voice have found her of kindred spirit from everyone from Syd Barrett to Eudora Welty, and seem to just keep referring to what she does as her own thing and appreciating that strange place where it resides. City Paper says, “She’s noisy when she might’ve hushed up, nervy when most are relaxed, funny when others stay forlorn and dressy when she could be buttoned-up.” It’s this comfort to contain multitudes that has had her and her band sharing stages with everyone from Richard Thompson and Buffy Sainte Marie to Dr.Dog and Junip.
