J.J. Gregg and David Van Auken ••••••••• LUNAR PRAIRIE • South Asian Sitar Meets American Fingerstyle Guitar

May 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$20.00

Drawing from the Fahey school of fingerpicking, David Van Auken’s unadorned guitar arrangements create an apt canvas for J.J. Gregg’s beautifully fluid sitar melodies, evoking a certain joy that permeates the duo’s stellar debut album, Lunar Prairie.

Lunar Prairie mixes Americana fingerstyle guitar with the enchanting sounds of the sitar. With 24 strings between them, J.J. Gregg and David Van Auken guide listeners on a magical, musical journey. Salem-based J.J. Gregg performs lyrical and highly emotive improvisations on sitar, while David Van Auken, a Portland-based fingerstyle guitarist, makes contemporary compositions that extract from early acoustic country-blues traditions.

Their collaborative songwriting is gentle, playful, raucous, contemplative, placid, visionary, unpredictable, and captivating. From lullabies to blues, ragas to tunes, J.J. and David craft an immersive musical experience not to be missed.

Doors open at 7pm, Show at 7:30pm. Cocktails, Beer and Wine. 21+ please.

LISTEN LIVE!
