Ellnora: The Guitar Festival at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Urbana has come to be recognized (in the words of Fretboard Journal) as "one of the world's most forward-thinking guitar festivals." This year's line-up at the biennial festival features artist-in-residence Cindy Cashdollar and a roster of talent that includes classical, jazz, blues, flamenco, Hindustani, gypsy, rock and gospel musicians--and many more. On the Friday edition of "Live and Local," I'll talk with Krannert Center's Tammey Kikta about the festival overall, and we'll sample recordings representing just a few of the many talented artists.
