AcousticMusic.Org, 1250 Boston Post Road, Guilford, CT
Guitarist Extraordinaire Frank Vignola will be performing at AcousticMusic.Org in Guilford, CT on Saturday, November 1st.
The New York Times has deemed Vignola “one of the brightest stars of guitar”, and music legend Les Paul named him to his “Five Most Admired Guitarists” list.
Vignola grew up on Long Island listening to a wide range of music; including classical, rock, R&B, jazz, and pop. After attending music school, he picked up sideman gigs for the likes of Madonna, Leon Redbone, and Ringo Starr, and came into his own as a solo performer in the late 1980’s.
Over the course of his solo career, he has performed with Wynton Marsalis, David Grisman, Tommy Emmanuel, Donald Fagen, and the Boston and New York Pops, among others. He has also written 18 guitar instruction books for Mel Bay.
