Stories Without Words
'Finnigan specializes in pretty guitar tunes that could tame such savage beasts.' - Steve Newton, The Georgia Straight, September 16, 1999. 'Finnigan's music is at times soothing, uplifting, exciting and melancholy.' - Corry Anderson-Fennel, The Now, September 8, 1999. This album features some of Finnigan's most relaxing and meditative compositions, with the exception of the hit (two-handed tapping piece), 'The Woodcutter'. On many occasions, after a performance, I have been approached by someone who wants to tell me about the stories and images they have seen while listening to my music. I consider this to be the ultimate compliment and it is the reason behind naming this new collection of compositions 'Stories Without Words'. - Les Finnigan.
