Musical minimalism is hitting a high note in Oklahoma thanks to the dedication of one man and the allure of a single chair.
Two years ago, Casey Friedman founded Acoustic Oklahoma. With a white room, empty except for a single Singer Sewing chair, Friedman planned to capture musicians in their simplest essence on video. He posted those videos online and soon, had a line of his own…right out the door. Musicians from all over the state and beyond wanted to sit in the single Singer chair, strum a few notes and sing a few tunes.
Gallery visits Acoustic Oklahoma in April to see what all the fuss is about and why the entire country might follow Friedman’s lead and discover that sometimes, less is more.
FROM THE RIDGE
Oklahoma musicians don’t need to travel to Tennessee for fine handcrafted guitars. They only need to take a short drive to Pawnee, the home of Darrel Carender, one of the finest instrument makers in the country. Tag along as Gallery takes you inside Ridge Instruments, this April.
