Read a Flavorpill interview with Marc about the score.
“Ribot is a musician for whom the description ’guitarist’s guitarist’ is genuinely appropriate… The Kid was a profound and profoundly challenging evening of music, and established a new high water mark for a live music venue in Dallas.” —Dallas Observer


Marc Ribot, a “guitarists’ guitarist” by any reckoning, is simply one of the most distinctive, transporting, and plainly unyielding of guitarists playing today. A veteran of a multitude of projects of his own, he also has enlivened the work of artists as varied as Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, John Zorn, and Allison Krauss and Robert Plant’s hit album Raising Sand.

For his Earshot concert in Seattle, he performs solo guitar music in a program that culminates in his performance of his new solo-guitar score for one of the classics of early film, Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid, which starred the impish Jackie Coogan in the title role. The New York Guitar Festival commissioned the score, and Ribot premiered it last year during the festival at Merkin Hall in New York.
