GUITAR MUSIC CONCERT IN WINTER HARBOR, MAINE
AT SCHOODIC ARTS FOR ALL
Friday, April 26, 2019 at 7 PM
Transport yourself to the colorful land of Brazil without a passport or a plane ticket – and without even leaving town. Internationally recognized guitarist/composer Peter Griggs will help you do just that in a concert titled “Cafe Brazil” at Schoodic Arts For All in Winter Harbor. On Friday, April 26, 2019 at 7 PM, Mr. Griggs will perform a selection of Brazilian music, including boss-nova classics, samba and choro (a Brazilian style of music that sounds a bit like ragtime) by composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim (“The Girl from Ipanema”) and Luiz Bona (“Black Orpheus”).. The wide-ranging program, including instrumental and vocal renditions of classical and popular Brazilian music and selections from Griggs’ CD recording “Children Of The Amazon,” provides something for listeners with a taste for exotic sounds.
Critics in Germany, the United Kingdom and the USA have hailed Griggs as “a master of expressive sounds” known for his “sizzling guitar playing” and “sophisticated and highly enjoyable” programs. Germany’s Bergische Morning Post put it this way: “an almost unbelievable talent–Peter Griggs performs magic!”
Schoodic Arts For All is located at 427 Main Street in Winter Harbor ME. For more information, call 207-963-2569.
