About Paul

You’d never think it to look at Paul Pigat, but behind that unassuming grin and underneath those Doc Watson glasses lurks one of the most restless, combustible musical imaginations ever crammed like so much canned heat into a single body. Blessed with a jazz man’s sheen, a rockabilly heart and a hobo’s soul, there aren’t many genres of music that don’t pull at Pigat’s wayfaring imagination like a magnet. In many ways, it’s a mystery why Paul Pigat isn’t a household name yet. Maybe he’d be a lot easier to pin down if he wasn’t so darn good at so many different things.

Selected Works

One could be forgiven for thinking that up until now Paul Pigat has spent his whole career flying under the radar. Like all those great old Stax records where Steve Cropper stood behind Otis Redding and played his heart out before anyone knew who he was, Pigat has been creating sweet sounds for some of the best artists in the country without getting the attention you’d expect. Still, you’d have to have been hiding under a pretty big rock to have never heard the immediately recognizable sound of his distinctive guitar playing as over the last several years this unassuming Vancouver native has quietly compiled a list of credits that would be the envy of anyone in the music business.

Paul has shared the stage and lent his guitar mastery to some fine musicians over the years such as Jeff Beck, Jackob Dylan, Michael Kaeshammer, Albert Lee, James Burton, Brian Setzer, The Reverend Horton Heat, Neko Case, Jim Byrnes, The Sojourners, Carolyn Mark… this list could go on and on!

Masterclass

Pigat restless soul doesn’t allow him much downtime! When he’s not out with Cousin Harley, Boxcar Campfire or any of the many other projects he’s involved in, He can be found inspiring students at international guitar workshops, doing master classes or teaching privately at the VSOSOM.

His three critically acclaimed instructional DVDs have earned him the respect of the guitar world and have sent many a young picker on the path of musical development. He’s never shy to share his knowledge and love of music.

Other Sessions

To paraphrase the old blues song, Pigat’s got so many tunes he don’t know which way to jump. So, instead he simply gives into
his muse and exuberantly follows wherever it carries him.

Paul’s playing is influenced by such a diverse range of music he often creates side-projects to immerse himself in a particular
style.

The Paul Pigat Trio features a rotating cast of some of the best jazz players on the West Coast. The Trio swings through vintage bebop and jazz standards in the style of Charlie Christian, Les Paul, and Tal Farlow, featuring Pigats little known talent as a classic Jazz crooner. Smooth as silk and ruffles on the edge!

Then theres The Acoustic Project. One man exploring the unlimited possibilites of some wood and 6 wires. Influenced by such guitar pioneers like John Renbourne and Leo Kottke among many others: this is what Paul does for fun!

Be sure to check out the Upcoming Shows page for dates to see Paul and his Master Class clinics in conjunction with Gretsch® Guitars! Marvel at the tone from his Gretsch® Black Falcon!

“Gretsch® could not possibly be more excited about welcoming Canadian guitar ace Paul Pigat as a Gretsch artist, clinician and family member.

“Pigat wowed Gretsch fans at the four-day Viva Las Vegas rockabilly event, and did so once again when he stopped by Gretsch guitars headquarters in Scottsdale, Ariz., to play a dazzlingly virtuoso lunchtime set that left listeners’ jaws somewhere around their ankles.”

plink, plunk, plonk…..SCREEECH!
