About the Event

Friday, November 4 8:oopm Suggested donation- $15 The Recovery Lounge is pleased to present virtuoso guitar legend Adrian Legg for a return visit. Throughout  his career, he has earned the highest praise from the media. "Legg is,  above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility,”  observes the St. Petersburg Times. “Through fast-fingered picking,  spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds  like an orchestra.” Guitar Player heralds how he “combines a sublime  melodic sense with a mighty right-hand groove, creating pretty music  with rhythmically aggressive undercurrents,” while Acoustic Guitar notes  that “the guitar is the most versatile instrument in the world, and  nobody demonstrates this better than Adrian Legg.” But the Atlanta  Journal-Constitution likely summed up his impact on listeners best when  it exclaimed, "Mr. Legg's compositions, with their narrative melodies  and nakedly emotive tones, offer an antidote to the guitar-hero  syndrome.” For Legg, the fulcrum and essence of his creativity is  in live performance. “Playing live is the whole point,” he stresses.  “Everyone makes a journey, an effort; we all come together — me, the  audience, the people who run the venue — to share this wonderful,  universal, human emotional interaction. This is where music lives. Many thanks to our media sponsor North Country Public Radio for helping us spread the word about this special event.
