Visionary guitarists William Eaton, Anthony Mazzella, and Fitzhugh Jenkins join forces as the Electric Harp Guitar Group (EHGG) to perform on their unique electric harp guitars, acoustic guitars, and synthesizer guitars in a special live concert at Old Town Center for the Arts.
A local phenomenon with international experience ‘EHGG’ combines individual virtuosity with ensemble sensibility to create instrumental compositions, drawn from transcendental world, jazz, rock and new age genres. A special visual treat for this concert is the addition of guest artist Taylor Marie, who will perform ‘aerial dance’ on silks, trapeze and lyra (aerial hoop), accompanied by EHGG.
Each musician brings diverse talent and creative technique to the ensemble.
Anthony Mazzella is recognized as one of the most innovative and technically proficient guitar players in the world, and was voted as “one of the top ten guitarists in the U.S.” by Guitar One magazine. Anthony recently performed and video taped his latest solo project Guitar Legends Tribute Show at Old Town Center for the Arts. Fitzhugh Jenkins has become renowned for his versatility on acoustic, classical, electric and bass guitars and his performing and recording career has taken him around the United States, Europe, India, Canada, and Hawaii.
William Eaton is acknowledged as one of the world’s great designers and builders of unique guitars and stringed instruments. He is a four-time GRAMMY nominee, NAMMY (Native American Music Awards) winner, and long time recording artist for Canyon Records. Eaton is also the current director of the longest running guitar making school in North America, Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery, a school he co-founded in 1975 with John Roberts and Bob Venn.
Fitzhugh Jenkins has spent the last several years seeking out the elusive muse in his travels to Cuba, Buenos Aires, Spain, Ireland and other places. He studied guitar in France with Pierre Bensusan and will be leaving in March to study sound healing in Thailand.
The Electric Harp Guitar Group has sold out their past four shows at OTCA, so grab your tickets early and come enjoy a special evening of electric harp guitar music.
