Oracle: the life & music of Michael Hedges


The eldest son of Midwestern musicians/educators, Michael Hedges was a young musical prodigy – with an emerging talent that would take him from small-town Oklahoma to Baltimore’s Peabody Conservatory, and Carnegie Hall.

Mostly known as a once-in-a-generation force that would revolutionize the acoustic guitar, perhaps Michael’s truest story and lasting legacy is that of an important twentieth-century composer.
