We are excited to present Columbus guitarist Jim Volk as our featured performer for April! Wednesday, April 4th at 7:30, refreshments will be provided beforehand.
Jim Volk's masterful yet whimsical performances have spellbound audiences of all age groups and backgrounds for three decades. His fiery, melodic hybrid style of picking has incurred countless comparisons to Kottke, Keaggy and Tommy E. His solo release, “Blue Wheels…and Other Guitar Favorites” has drawn much critical acclaim and award nationwide.
The new 2018 edition of the Album "Past Atmospheres Present States" has just been released! Many more tunes,remastered vocal pieces from the long out of print "Blue Wheels...and Other Guitar Favorites".
Volk artfully incorporates traditional fingerstyle and electric guitar techniques and devises for a truly “Modern Acoustic” presentation while keeping the traditional essence intact.
Jim Volk’s critically acclaimed and award winning solo guitar work draws from traditional and contemporary styles around the world. More like a bird's eye journey of the world of music rather than focusing on one specific style. He will go from the 16th century to '70s rock then swing it like Chet meets Django within a measure; and oh the fun listeners have trying to count the number of themes he has woven into that 10 minute medley. And of course, plenty of of classic favorites that span a few decades and as well as delightfully quirky moments of musical entertainment.
