Tempo Studio presents a Holiday Guitar Concert on Saturday, December 16, 2017.

Enjoy an intimate concert featuring finger-style guitar tunes, holiday cheer and storytelling from John Hildreth. The show will feature an eclectic mix of seasonal music, original tunes, inspired covers, and contemporary classical repertoire that doesn't make it out to the restaurant and club gigs.

Among other things, the program will feature original guitar arrangements of Vince Guaraldi's "Charlie Brown Christmas", as well as the main title suite from Star Wars, arranged for guitar, to celebrate the release of The Last Jedi.

John Hildreth is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist based in Southwest Virginia performing throughout the New River Valley and beyond. His live shows combine virtuoso, aggressive acoustic guitar with folk, rock, pop and 80s songs.

John is classically trained in guitar and composition, and holds a Master of Arts in Music. His style is sometimes called ‘deep-tissue guitar,’ at points combining acoustic, world, jazz, rock, traditional, Americana and classical genres. In addition to the acoustic guitar, you may also see him playing electric guitar, Spanish/classical guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, piano or melodica.

John is also a studied composer of solo, chamber and electro-acoustic music. His compositions and arrangements have been performed in the United States, Canada and Europe.

In addition to solo performances, he also tours and performs with contra dance band Dot Dot Dash as well as The Completely Smashed Irish Band.


Tickets are $10.00 at the door with additional contributions welcome.

Doors open at 7:00 pm and the music starts at 7:30 pm.
