Australian guitarist/singer/song writer Geoff Achison is very popular in the Carolina Foothills region. He typically makes Tryon a stop on his US Tour and we, our community, typically and enthusiastically fill the house!
This year he will be playing out under the stars at Peterson Amphitheater at Tryon Fine Arts Center on April 28th. But that is not all folks.
Guitar players in our area are in for a special treat during Geoff’s spring 2016 tour because he will be taking time out of his crazy busy schedule to teach a Guitar Master Class. Beyond the fact that anyone who plays guitar at any level could benefit from his mentorship, just being in that kind of setting with one of the top guitarists of our time, well, that is reason enough to get your ticket now! Too, we hope you will help us to spread the word to all those guitar-lovers in your life.
