The Arcata Playhouse presents a double bill of acoustic roots and blues guitarists on Thursday, March 26 at 8pm. Pacific Northwest guitarists Thad Beckman and Terry Robb will perform separate solo sets and join together for an exciting evening of dynamic acoustic guitar music. Beckman is a longtime Humboldt favorite with roots in the local music community that go back many decades. His adept guitar playing, gritty vocals and ability to tell a tale bring a fresh perspective to familiar themes and emotions. His mastery of finger-style, electric and steel guitar earned him attention from fellow musicians. He’s worked with Tom Russell, Bo Diddley and Earl Thomas to name a few. He has shared the stage with artists such as B.B. King, Emmylou Harris, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, James Cotton, Levon Helm, Dave Alvin and many more. He is currently based in Portland and returns to the area on a semi-regular basis to keep his local fans happy and reconnect with the Humboldt music community. This time around he will be joined by guitarist Terry Robb. Rob is known for his signature finger-style playing which has earned him international acclaim from worldwide audiences, esteemed music critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from Delta blues, ragtime, country, swing and jazz Robb has built a unique sound that has made him a legend in his prolific music career spanning four decades. Needless to say both are stellar guitarists and seasoned showmen and promise to deliver an exceptional evening of virtuosity and inspiration.
Doors open at 7:30 pm with the show at 8 pm. Tickets are $20 general and $18 students and members and are available at Wildberries Marketplace, online or reserve at 707-822-1575. The Arcata Playhouse is located at 1251 9th Street in the historic Old Creamery Building in Arcata.
