Most recorded guitarists in music history set to perform in Mission Viejo Dec. 7

Richard Smith and Brent Mason

Mark your calendar for Saturday, December 7 when Richard Smith and Brent Mason – two of the most recorded guitarists in music history – take the Mission Viejo stage.

Lord of the Strings presents these gifted guitarists at 7 pm in the Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center.

Audiences delight when world-renowned finger-style guitarist Richard Smith cuts loose.  His ever-growing repertoire comprises a wide array of music from classical Bach to Beatles pop.  It ranges from Scott Joplin rags and Sousa marches to jazz standards and Django Reinhardt gypsy swing.  Smith delivers both lightning-fast barnburners and beautiful ballads, occasionally spiced with vocals.

To devotees of fine guitar picking, Brent Mason is the king of the game.  He has played on records by just about everyone who is anyone in Nashville; has probably appeared on more top 10 hits than any other session guitarist; won a Grammy; and is a 14-time winner of the Academy of Country Music Guitarist of the Year Award.  In fact, Brent was so dominant in these awards in the 90s that he was “retired” from his category due to a clause that said no one could win more than 10 years in a row.

Don’t miss this dynamic chance to enjoy the music of these musical greats! Tickets are $40 and are available at the door or by calling 949-842-2227.
