between Prince and Fort Lowell
This month Tucson native son Jonathan Martinez plays his fresh and unique music, a style that uses harmonics, looping, multiple capos, lightning fast picking, tapping, with guitar percussion. In short, fun to listen to! And Kathy Acosta will be back with more of the new repertoire she is learning, as will the Garcia brothers. We welcome you to bring a guitar--or any plucked instrument for that matter. Come play, or just come listen.
Call 342-0022 to reserve a spot, or you can drop by and we will try to fit you in! We would love to hear what you are playing. There will not be a meeting in August. We resume on September 3.
The Parkening Competition results are in! Tucson's own Grace Sheppard placed fourth. This is her third international competition, and she has been a finalist in all of them---a great accomplishment for this talented young woman. The Youth Division winner was Ashwin Krishna, age 17.
The 2015 winner of the adult division is Meng Su who played a brilliant Concierto de Aranjuez to take the top prize. Runner-up, in what had to be a very tough decision for the judges, was Rovshan Mamedkuliev. Third place was awarded to Tengyue Zhang.
