Equally at home with classical music and jazz, Byrd has appeared on many major TV shows including Today, Tonite, Perry Como, Mike Douglas, Kraft Music Hall, Johnny Carson, David Frost and Steve Allen. He also has starred on his own half-hour TV show from Washington and has been the subject of two TV productions devoted to his unique contribution to American music. Byrd has won Downbeat magazine's International Cri tics' Poll and, for several years running, the Playboy Jazz November 4, 1975 performances at the White House. Byrd and his trio have toured throughout most of the world, often at the invitation of the State Department. He has traveled to Europe, Saudi Arabia, South and Central America, the Far East, Australia and New Zealand. Early in his jazz guitar career, Byrd was not satisfied with his direction and studied composition and classical guitar. He received a six-week scholarship to study with the great Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia at Siena, Italy. The technical proficiency derived from his classical training opened up a new level of performance -- jazz played on a classical guitar without a pick or amplification.
