Alex de Grassi and Andrew York
This event is presented by the Santa Barbara Acoustic Music Association.
Acoustic guitar virtuoso and innovator Alex de Grassi joins with Grammy winning classical guitarist Andrew York to fuse the sounds and traditions of steel and nylon into a unique duo program. Their mutual passion for music from multiple genres has led these two acclaimed composers / performers to find common ground where steel string and classical guitar interact seamlessly. Encompassing original compositions, improvisation and arrangements of standards and pop songs, their concert will present an astonishingly diverse musical landscape.
Blue seat patrons ($45) will be welcome to an after concert reception to meet the musicians and purchase CDs.
The SB Acoustic Music Association will then present Guitar Sunday at the Alhecama Theatre, with workshops by Alex at 11am, Andrew at 1pm and Carl Verheyen at 3pm. This will be a rare opportunity to spend time with and learn from three of the world's great guitarists. For more information please visit www.sbama.org.Online Tickets
