Top guitarists come together for special Fan Appreciation & Holiday Show Dec. 3
Two of the best fingerstyle guitarists on the planet will grace the Mission Viejo stage on Saturday, December 3. That’s when legendary acoustic guitarist Peppino D' Agnostino and fingerpicking master Richard Smith perform together for the first time for a special fan appreciation and holiday show.
The Lord of the Strings concert begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber at Mission Viejo Civic Center, 200 Civic Center.
Peppino has been hailed as “a guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar Magazine and as its “Player of the Year” reader’s poll winner. He holds many top guitar awards, and the San Francisco Chronicle encapsulated the essential difference that distinguishes his music when it dubbed him “a poet.”
Richard’s repertoire includes a wide range of styles from country, bluegrass and folk to jazz, pop and classical music. His flawless technique, quickly switching between fingerpicking and flatpicking, not only earned him the admiration of his peers such as Tommy Emmanuel, Doyle Dykes, Muriel Anderson and Joscho Stephan but also numerous awards.
Tickets are $30 and are available at www.LordOfTheStringsConcerts.com or at the door. For more information, call 949-842-2227.
