Wednesday, April 30 at 8 pm
Brooks Robertson & John Standefer

Acoustic finger-style guitar duo
Tickets $15 adults & $13 members & students

“Their playing weaves magic, surprises the ear, lifts the heart and takes the listener to a better place. Great work Gentlemen, Bravo!”
- Tommy Emmanuel CGP

Brooks and John both perform and teach each year at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention in Nashville and this is where they connected and decided to team up.

The contrast of Brooks’ lightening quick licks and John’s beautiful, smooth playing is only the beginning of the magic. They have developed some truly great arrangements and a kind of performance synergy that goes beyond what either of them do individually. The new sound is absolutely infectious to audiences, who are giving them rave reviews.

Tickets at Wildberries Market, Wildwood Music or 822-1575 to reserve.
