Guitar Sessions with Anthony Garcia
A fusing of ancient and contemporary guitar styles
Australia is a flourishing multi-cultural nation and home to one of the oldest surviving musical cultures in the world. This culture of ancient music is juxtaposed along-side the contemporary, in a timeless exploration of the Australian landscape, which forms the backdrop for the musical stylings of guitarist/composer Anthony Garcia.
For one night only at USQ Artsworx, let yourself be transported into the world of solo guitar, through a selection of original compositions from acclaimed recordings Skyflyer and Malili.
