Sat. Jan. 25 from 6 – 8pm. A fun and entertaining evening of guitar portraits and the stories behind them. Artist, writer and comedian Dave Bradford combines illustrations of iconic guitars, worn from the lives they accompanied. Join us for a reading from his collection of original stories behind the portraits. Guitar Stories is a multi-media show, combining storytelling, layered with visual media and live music. Every guitar has a story, an origin, a life filled with creation, worn by travel, use, neglect, dinged in enthusiastic spasms, left on a Greyhound, used as a weapon in defense of an aggressive anti-fan. These are the stories of a few of them. Dave Bradford is a writer, visual artist, actor and performer. His work is derived from life experience, and pure imagination.
