American Fingerstyle Guitar Concert

Three acclaimed American Fingerstyle Guitarists are coming to Lopez for a unique concert, Monday, May 14th, 7:30 PM, at Center Church. There’s a $15 to $20 suggested sliding scale donation at the door. On a national tour, these talented musicians present genre-bending instrumental interpretations of blues, jazz, folk, classical and Celtic traditions. They explore many styles that have been popularized by artists including Mississippi John Hurt, John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Michael Hedges, Ralph Towner, Andy McKee, and others.

This concert features EWM Records artist Peter Janson (from Cape Cod Massachusetts), Finger Food Productions artist Steve Davison (from Little Rock Arkansas), and Solid Air Records artist Tracy Moore (from Camano Island Washington.)

Janson is an award-winning contemporary nylon-string guitarist performing his trademark fusion of jazz, classical, and world-folk styles played with passion, artistry, and technical mastery.

Davison is a two-time finalist and winner of the solo guitar competition at the Arkansas Acoustic Music Festival, and a finalist in the Merle Travis Fingerstyle Competition.

A master 12-string player, Moore has lifted the 12-string guitar above its former role as an accompaniment or power guitar instrument to what Tracy calls “Melodic 12-String Guitar.” All three artists have performed throughout North America.
