$15 – $30
Fingerstyle guitar master Alex de Grassi—founder of the Mendocino Summer Guitar Workshop that runs concurrently with the Festival—will be joined by jazz guitarist extraordinaire Sean McGowan in a concert program featuring their solo and duo compositions and arrangements that explore a wide range of musical styles.
De Grassi’s solo steel-string pieces resemble orchestral overtures more than mere songs. Alex’s control and sensitivity are almost as striking as his technical expertise.”
