On Hear Elden Kelly Here: New music and podcast interview

  Elden Kelly began to play the guitar at age ten, studying jazz and experimental improvisation.  His interest in international styles     
eventually led him to the oud (a fretless Egyptian lute), and the glissentar (a 12-stringed fretless guitar), which he now incorporates

into many of his performances.  In addition to instrumental improvisation, Elden also works as a singer-songwriter, whose musical style
blends middle-eastern influences with neo-classicism, jazz, and American roots music.  His new CD, 1000 Doors, exhibits
        this direction in a compilation of original musical settings for solo voice and guitar of the sacred writings of the Baha’i Faith.
