The guitarist of infamous Baltimore's Horse Lords, Owen Gardner earned his reputation with an unconventional mastery of string instruments, primary guitar and banjo. He plays almost exclusively in Just Intonation, and develops a unique style embracing improvisation, non-Western string tradition and minimalist preciseness.
