Anthony Pirog

Anthony Pirog is a guitarist who currently lives in New York City but honed his unique take on freely improvised music while living in the Washington DC area. He is a guitarist well versed in many genres of music and performs as a solo musician, in a duo with cellist Janel Leppin and leads his own trio and sextet. As a composer, he is adventurous and explores the possibilities that the guitar, both acoustic and electric, has to offer. He has recently released his first solo CD on Sonic Mass Records titled Beginning to End, which is a collection of guitar improvisations.

Mr. Pirog has mastered the use of many effects pedals and his performances produce an eclectic set of improvisations. He has toured the U.S. extensively and performed with Elliott Sharp and Mary Halvorson and has opened for such people as Peter Brotzmann, Andrea Parkins, Susan Alcorn, Marshall Allen, Evan Parker, Alan Licht, Jandek, Matmos and Eugene Chadbourne.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
