Ella Waters Concert Series: Peter Biedermann

Peter Biedermann-image appears with permissionIn his third appearance at WTML, guitarist Peter Biedermann will be focusing on pieces from his latest recording, "Tales From The Desert," on a variety of guitars in unique tunings. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last 50+ years. Fans of fellow guitarists such as Michael Hedges, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Alex de Grassi and Pierre Bensusan will enjoy this music. CDs will be for sale after the performance. Please go to www.biedermannmusic.com for more information. Seating is limited, so registration is requested and begins September 12 online, or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720. 

About the Artist: Peter Biedermann is a solo instrumental guitarist based in Green Valley, AZ who has been composing and performing for over 40 years. The common thread throughout his musical background is crossing the boundaries of music genres. This hybrid, contemporary style melds elements of American and European folk with jazz and blues shadings; underpinned by subtle ambient electronics. Peter began focusing on performing original solo instrumentals beginning in 2000. The music is now being presented in intimate settings such as libraries, art galleries, house concerts, churches etc. 

The music series is presented by the Friends of Welles-Turner Memorial Library and Welles-Turner Memorial Library in memory of Isabella Waters, who was a generous library supporter.

Witches in Connecticut

Seating is limited, so registration is requested starting September 17, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

About the speaker: Jennifer Busa is a Museum Educator at the Connecticut Historical Society. She develops and teaches school programs as well as the August Adventures summer program for youth.
