Fingerstyle acoustic guitar concert set for July 27

Concert ends West Linns Mark Harmons annual Accent on Music seminar


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO  - West Linn musician Mark Harmon will present a concert as the culimination of his annual Accent on Music guitar seminar.

Grammy Award-winning guitarist Mark Harmon of West Linn will present a fingerstyle acoustic guitar concert July 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Portland State University’s Lincoln Recital Hall.

The concert is the culmination of Hanson’s 14th annual Accent on Music guitar seminar. He will be joined on stage by national fingerpicking champion Michael Chapdelaine and Portland jazz virtuoso Eric Skye.

Fingerstyle guitar is defined by the picking technique — picking the strings with the fingertips rather than strumming and allows the player to play multi-voiced music, much like a piano.

The concert will feature each artist performing individually and then together as a trio. Their repertoires include solo arrangements of jazz standards, pop tunes and original compositions.

Tickets to the event are $10 through Lake Music, 15560 Boones Ferry Road in Lake Oswego, or from Accent on Music at 503-699-1814 or online at AccentOnMusic.com/Calendar. Tickets sold at the door are $15 each.

Lincoln Recital Hall is located on the PSU campus at 1620 SW Park Ave., Portland.
