COOS BAY – Award-winning classical, Spanish, fingerstyle guitarist Andy Hackbarth pays tribute to the “Father of the Classical Guitar,” Andres Segovia, in a concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16, at The Egyptian Theatre in Coos Bay. Doors will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the concert.
Hackbarth has spent his life studying, playing and teaching guitar. He holds a Bachelor of Music in classical guitar performance from the University of Colorado at Boulder and studied for several years at the Lawrence University Conservatory of Music and the Aspen Music School.
Hackbarth pays homage to Andres Segovia through his traditional Spanish fingerstyle work. His current touring show, "A Tribute to Segovia," features instrumental selections and short stories about Segovia's life and music. This eclectic musical journey transports listeners from the music of Bach and the cathedrals of Germany, to the hills of Spain and the work of Albeniz and Tarrega; from classical Europe, to the southern tip of South America. "A Tribute to Segovia" also looks to modern music and how Segovia's work has influenced the contemporary guitar world. Click here to view a video of Andy Hackbarth.
