Concert at Sons of Norway, September 27

The Petersburg Arts Council presents Chris Proctor’s “Steel String Guitar for the New World” on Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. If you think that you know how a solo acoustic guitar concert sounds, prepare to be amazed and delighted. Bringing 6 and 12-string steel-string guitars, Chris will present a concert of both stunning arrangements and sparkling original compositions, drawn from folk, bluegrass, blues, jazz, Celtic rock, pop, and world music sources. You’ll think that you’re hearing 3 guitarists at once, as Chris coaxes sound you’ve never heard from a guitar with techniques that you’ve never seen.

Tickets are $15 and available for advance purchase at Lee’s Clothing and also at the door. Light appetizer fare and punch will be provided and is included in the admission price. Kito’s Kave will be offering wine and beer for purchase. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Free Guitar Workshop, September 26

On the evening prior to his concert, Chris Proctor will be offering a guitar workshop for guitarists. It will take place on Monday, September 26 from 5:00-7:30 p.m. at the Public Library’s Community Room.

Each participant needs to bring his or her own guitar. The workshop is intended for any age, but to obtain the most from it, participants should be comfortable with basic chords.

There is a limit of 15 participants. Please call Mark Kubo at (907) 650-7210 to reserve a spot.

Additional space is available for those who want to observe and audit the workshop without participating. This is offered on a space-available basis on the workshop evening.
