From Bach to the Blues - a program showcasing the versatility of the solo acoustic guitar.
The acoustic guitar has been a musical fixture for centuries. Beginning in 17th century Spain and continuing through present day, the guitar has been used in almost all styles of music using a variety of techniques. Some of these styles include classical, flamenco, blues, jazz, ragtime, latin, japanese, and hawaiian, and some of the techniques used are finger-style, tremolo, plectrum, harmonics, slide, percussive playing, and alternate tunings. This program will explore many of the different styles and techniques on this extremely versatile instrument.
Chris Keiffer is a unique guitarist who actively performs and teaches in the Boston area and is a 2007 graduate of the Berklee College of Music. In his 25 years of playing and studying, he has explored a variety of musical styles on both the acoustic and electric guitar including blues, folk, jazz, slide, bluegrass, rock, R&B and funk. In recent years, his focus has been on solo acoustic guitar and the many moods it can create. From the beauty of a gypsy love ballad, to the earthy soul of pre-war acoustic blues, Chris has an appreciation and love for all styles of music and he strives to share this passion with his students and those around him.
