Award-winning guitarist to perform Friday at CWC
Apr 11, 2014 - From staff reports
Andy Hackbarth, an award-winning recording artist, songwriter and classical guitarist, will present a concert with friends Friday in the Robert A. Peck Arts Center Theatre at Central Wyoming College.
Hackbarth works with children in Fremont County schools while he is in residency at CWC. The program is sponsored by Arts in Action.
Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. The concert is at 7:30 p.m.
Recognized as a classical guitar virtuoso in his early 20s, Hackbarth later sought new musical interests, including song writing. The Colorado native moved to Nashville to match his songwriting skills with his mastery of the guitar.
Hackbarth has studied with some the world's most highly respected musicians, including John Williams, Christopher Parkening and Juilliard's Sharon Isbin and Kevin Gallagher.
He taught at the University of Colorado as a graduate student, and has worked with thousands of children and adults at schools, libraries and community education centers throughout the country. He continues to make outreach opportunities an integral part of his touring schedule.
Hackbarth is currently based in Denver and Nashville and writes and records with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Tickets may be purchased at the CWC Box Office or at the door.
