GUITAR MUSIC CONCERT IN GLENWOOD, MARYLAND
AT ST. ANDREW’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH, UNION CHAPEL
Friday, February 9 at 7 PM

Transport yourself through the centuries and around the world without a passport or a time machine. Internationally recognized guitarist/composer Peter Griggs will do just that in a concert titled, “500 Years of Music for Guitar.” On Friday, February 9, 2018 at 7 PM, Mr. Griggs will perform everything from an Irish jig, Spanish flamenco, and Brazilian samba to classical works through the ages (Renaissance through Contemporary) along with jazz, blues, and original compositions. The wide-ranging program, hosted by St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church at Union Chapel, provides something for listeners of all tastes.

Peter Griggs has presented more than 500 solo guitar concerts throughout the USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, the Low Countries, Scandinavia and eastern Europe at art centers, festivals, museums, churches, jazz clubs and other venues. His recordings are available on Folkways Records, Music of the World, Treecastle Music, and CD Baby and some will be available at the live performance.  He was based for more than ten years in Dusseldorf, Germany, now resides in Brooklyn, New York, and frequently tours the east coast of the United States.

Critics in Germany and the United Kingdom 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!”

Admission is by free-will donation.
