Art Picks: Lowertown Guitar Festival
Now in its third year, this day-long exhibition of six-string virtuosity is a must-attend for guitar geeks. The lineup includes masters of a variety of different guitar styles: Nashville picker Guthrie Trapp will be there, as will blues-rock royalty Greg Koch, jazz guitarist Park Evans and female shredder Toni Lindgren. Local favorites Jerry Kosak (acoustic), Dean Granos (jazz) and Tim Sparks (fingerstyle) will be on hand as well, along with many others. In addition to music on two stages, there will also be a ton of workshops and gear demonstrations. Oh, and it’s free.
