Singer-songwriter Jack Garratt is known for his uncanny ability to weave together mesmerizing soundscapes with loops, drum machines and guitar — and that's what he did for most of his #MicroShow in March of 2016 at the Weisman Museum on the campus of the University of Minnesota.

But due to a minor glitch in Garratt's looping gear, he was only able to play guitar for the song "Worry." No one in the audience seemed to be bothered; in fact, the opposite happened: the audience quieted down and listened in awe.

Songs performed
