Richard Gilewitz Acoustic Adventures
August 18 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm• Free
Today, recognized world-wide as a performer who has a quirky take on everything around him, Richard Gilewitz continues to live up to this depiction with rousing shows filled with offbeat observations combined with his right-hand wizardry and heaps of technique. With Gilewitz’s performances teeming with sparkles of mood mastery and wonderment, he shares a fresh impression of sound to the listener during his concert appearances and at his workshops. The concert will be a combination performance with a Q & A session at the end.
Hosted by Uptown Music in Keizer OR, this concert is a free community event for the public. Donations of canned goods for the food pantry are appreciated for admission.
Says Spectrum Magazine, “Much of the charm of a Gilewitz performance is in the stories he tells. He wondered aloud to the audience how many ducks he could take out in a fight if he were to be attacked by a flock of the sneaky waterfowl.”
Whether playing solo, conducting guitar seminars and school programs, or sharing the stage with folks such as Stephen Housden of the Little River Band, Brooks Williams, Michael Fix, The California Guitar Trio, John McCutcheon, John Renbourn, Mose Allison, the late John Fahey, Leo Kottke, Norman Blake, Indigo Girls, or John Hammond, Richard always invites the audience to join his journey filled with twitters, twists, and turns at every tune.
