Hank Roberts & Eric Aceto
Hank Roberts created an extensive body of music as a composer and recording artist, and also as one who collaborates with world class artists such as Bill Frisell, Hal Willner, Tim Berne, Andy Summers, Dave King and Ethan Iverson from “The Bad Plus”, Donna the Buffalo, Sim Redmond Band, Kevin Kinsella, Wingnut, and Ti Ti Chickapea.
Immersed in the traditions of jazz, acoustic folk and blues, electrified rock and experimental music, Eric Aceto has been active as a session player, touring musician and designer of musical instruments for over 30 years. While playing music during his college years, his dissatisfaction with the amplified violins of the time led him to experiment with the design and construction of his own instruments. Years of development and evolution have allowed Eric to produce instruments of exceptional quality. His violins, mandolins and guitars are today in increasing demand by discerning musicians around the world, artists such as Jean Luc Ponty, Darol Anger, Matt Glaser, Tommy Malone , Jerry Goodman, Ritchie Havens, Irene Sazer, Ruben Blades, David Torn and many many others.
