This video captures the very first time that Chinese pipa master Shenshen Zhang and scalloped fretboard guitar pioneer and Ancient Future bandleader Matthew Montfort played together, on or off stage. They met on August 21, 2011, at an acoustic guitar concert set up by steel string guitarist Mike Kostowskyj with Matthew Montfort on scalloped fretboard guitar and Richard Patterson on classical guitar at The Wine Bar in Half Moon Bay. Mike invited Shenshen Zheng to perform a number by herself since she was in the house. Matthew Montfort was very impressed and invited her to jam with him, and this is exactly what happened from their first note on stage together! There are no edits to the audio or video.
