Acoustic Guitar ~ Virtual Concert

Library Program for Adults

  • Date: 10/20/2020 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM  
  • Location: Virtual ~ Zoom

Peter Biedermann-appears with permissionPeter Biedermann is a solo instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ who has been composing and performing for over 45 years and will be performing for the fourth time for the Welles-Turner Memorial Library. The common thread throughout his musical background is crossing the boundaries of music genres. This hybrid, contemporary style melds elements of American and European folk with jazz and blues shadings; underpinned by subtle ambient electronics. Peter began focusing on performing original solo instrumentals beginning in 2000. The music is now being presented virtually from his home until further notice. Peter will be focusing on new pieces as well as material from his latest live recording – "Say What?" – on a variety of guitars in unique tunings. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last 60+ years. Fans of fellow guitarists such as Michael Hedges, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Alex de Grassi and John Martyn will enjoy this music.
