Pittsburgh-based solo nylon-string guitarist Daryl Shawn plays at Scratch, where he appears the first Thursday of every month. There's no cover charge, and the cocktails and food will be flowing.

Daryl Shawn has released five albums of solo guitar and has performed all across North America. Songlines magazine calls him "the man who can make his guitar sound like anything". His style is inspired by music from around the world, especially Spain and Africa, and informs his original tunes as well as his unique improvisational approach to familiar songs, from traditionals to jazz to indie.

You can check out his music here.
