Ian is a Boston-based acoustic double-neck guitarist and Candyrat recording artist  He is one of only about five musicians worldwide to tackle the double-neck guitar in earnest, he fluidly combines a variety of self-invented playing techniques necessitated by his multi-layered compositions, which, taken together, have begun to establish the instrument’s musical validity perhaps more so than the work of any other artist.

Playing the double necked, 18 string acoustic guitar would be so difficult to imagine but playing it the way Ian does one would have to say it is just stunning!  Here is one of his tunes.


 “Ian Ethan represents something so new in musical approach, that the result is near impossible to pigeon hole into a ‘sounds like’ statement. It has been my personal privilege to observe his unwavering and deep exploration of this new technique and on a relatively rare instrument; the original music of Ian Ethan Case is not to be missed.”      Emmy-winning composer and producer Peter Bruce Wilder 

“His new recording, Run Toward the Mountains, is a transfixing brand of energetic minimalism, with intense grooves and a harmonic sense reminiscent of Pat Metheny’s best moments.”   Don Ross

And Don't Forget that you can still see Stefano Barone in Big Rapids on Thursday April 14th at Galloup Guitars, On Friday the 15th in Petoskey at the Red Sky Stage and Traverse City on Saturday at the Unitarian Universalist Hall!
