International Guitar Series Presents Chris Proctor (1/28/10)

Guitarist Chris ProctorTonight at 7:30 p.m. in the GRCC Recital Hall, GRCC’s Music Department will hold another concert as part of its International Guitar Series featuring Chris Proctor.

From Proctor’s bio: Critics call his guitar playing “breathtaking,” “haunting,” and “rich.” They describe his compositions as “spectacular,” “elegant,” and “exquisite.” They trace the roots of his style to folk, jazz, pop, and classical music, and, when all else fails, they try and categorize his playing as “baroque folk,” or “Instrumental Americana.” The guitar press compares him to Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges. Another reviewer ventures this analysis: “In his taut, faceted compositions, Chris gives the guitar sole responsibility for a piece’s rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic components, and in the process creates full-voiced ‘guitar songs.’ His playing illuminates the instrument’s deepest voices and most sonorous qualities, rendering a pop-folk equivalent of the classical guitar sonata.”
