Recap of Music Meeting June 6, 2017

We enjoyed another fantastic evening of excellent music Tuesday, June 6th at the beautiful Paschal Winery in Talent with 25 in attendance.

Please plan to attend the next music meeting which has been postponed until July 11 because the first

Tuesday is July 4th.  In order to continue at this fabulous venue, we want to make the meetings profitable for the winery. Besides the fine wine, a cheese plate, chocolate cake ala mode and chocolate bars are available. You may also wish to take advantage of Paschal’s wine club benefits.

Tonight at 7:30 the faculty of the Britt Guitar Weekend takes the stage at the Britt Performance Garden in Jacksonville. Tickets are only $14. Pretty good for 2 hours of guitar played by 6 guitarists from different genres. This year we added Vicki Genfan on percussive style (slap and tap) and Terry Robb on acoustic blues. Both are amazing. Come check it out!

Stone Records recording artist Aaron Larget-Caplan and EWM Records artist Peter Janson perform in Ashland on Wednesday, June 28th at Havurah Shir Hadash, 185 N. Mountain Ave, Ashland OR 97520 as part of their 14-date summer west-coast tour that has them performing from Seattle to Phoenix. More information below.

The Corvallis Guitar Society had their first guitar festival, and it was a huge success with Jaxon Williams playing a brilliant opening concert and Adam del Monte being the headliner. There were also great workshops and a masterclass by Adam. They will likely do it again next year, and it is highly recommended.
