Steven Kapp Perry: Michael Dowdle rocks on 'Convergence'

Published: Friday, June 10 2011 7:00 a.m. MDT

 Most Latter-day Saints know him for his acoustic guitar work on the "Twenty-Five Beloved Hymns" series, but guitarist Michael Dowdle's first and continuing love has always been the electric guitar.

On this pedal-to-the-metal album of instrumental power trio music, you'll hear why he's a favorite on YouTube with his playing videos, hear Michael's philosophy of rock and roll, and learn why this new album was sparked by a scripture in the New Testament (hint: it has to do with a candle and a bushel) and a listener from Holland.  You might even develop a whole new appreciation of guitar virtuosity.

That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
