Acoustic guitar masters Eric Skye and Mark Goldenberg will perform an intimate duet at Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts on Saturday, March 3.
Based in Portland, Skye occupies a unique niche between jazz, Americana and blues. He plays in an original style, threaded together with a healthy respect for the groove, and a love of unadulterated acoustic tone. His most recent solo release, “A Different Kind Of Blue,” a solo guitar re-imagining of Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue,” was listed in the top 10 acoustic albums for 2012 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and acknowledged by the Miles Davis family. Skye was honored five years ago with a signature model guitar from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company that has gone on to be one of that company’s best sellers.
Los Angeles-based Mark Goldenberg is the consummate A-list session player and sideman. He played lead guitar for Jackson Browne for 16 years and has toured with artists including, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt and Willie Nelson. He recently finished a two-year world tour with acclaimed pianist and actor Hugh Laurie. He is also a songwriter, whose works have been recorded by artists including Chicago, The Pointer Sisters and Natalie Imbruglia.
Saturday’s show will start at 7 pm at 594 Laneda Avenue, with admission $20 at the door.
