Experience US national fingerstyle champion Chris Proctor in concert at Davis Arts Center! We are thrilled to welcome back Chris Proctor, winner of the U.S. National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship and popular Sugarhouse, Rounder, Flying Fish and Windham Hill recording artist, in concert on Thursday, November 10, 8:00 pm.
Renowned as one of the modern masters of fingerstyle guitar, Proctor is at the forefront of contemporary steel-string guitar. Since winning the National Fingerstyle Guitar competition, he has toured constantly in North America and Europe, releasing a steady stream of recordings of his compositions and arrangements. His music is rooted in classic Americana, spiced with soul, folk, Celtic, jazz, pop, and classical flavors, all of which are in evidence in the 9 finely-crafted medleys which comprise his latest solo album, Close and Personal Friends.
Proctor’s warm stage presence and sense of humor, his 12-string and slide work, his adventurous 6-string techniques and tunings, his stunning original guitar pieces and arrangements, and his pioneering use of the electronic guitar bow have all made him a favorite with guitar fans everywhere.
He has appeared on two popular Windham Hill Guitar Samplers and was senior clinician for Taylor Guitars for more than twenty years. To honor him Taylor manufactured 100 “Chris Proctor Signature Model” guitars to his unique design specifications.
