A look back at the 2012-13 Concert Season at Three Stages
July 20, 2013 Mark Hanson Fingerstyle Guitar Workshop 1-3pm at Daniel Roest Guitar Studio in Folsom INFO & RSVP July 28, 7pm, Summer Guitar Fest with Benefits for SGS, with Mimi Fox, Pierre Bensusan, and Laurence Juber.
A performance steeped in guitar mastery, with three artists of diverse backgrounds presenting a seamless show. Described by the L.A. Times as “one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today”, Pierre Bensusan was voted “Best World Music Guitar Player” in 2008 by Guitar Player Magazine Readers Choice. Of Mimi Fox, no less of a jazz virtuoso than Joe Pass said “she plays with tremendous fire. She can do pretty much anything she wants on her instrument.” And Laurence Juber was selected by Paul McCartney himself to be the lead guitarist for Wings, Sir Paul’s post-Beatles ensemble. Together, these three artists promise an evening of guitar fireworks no fan of the instrument will want to miss.
