Across The Pond Guitar Festival
Musicians from as far away as Europe and as close as New Orleans will bring the Across the Pond Guitar Festival to 100 Men Hall on Friday, January 19, 2024 at 7PM. The concert at 100 Men Hall features guitar virtuosi Gavino Loche (Italy), Adrian Raso (Canada), Jimmy Robinson (New Orleans) accompanied by many New Orleans' great guitarists. Delicious food for purchase by Chef Joe from Beachside as well as a cash/credit bar. Tickets are $15 and available at https://the100menhall.com.
This Festival is truly international in its performers and its performances. The musicians will travel to perform concerts in Amsterdam, Atlanta, New Orleans and as well as here in Bay Saint Louis, where local guitarists will join them on stage.
“We are very happy to be able to bring musicians of international renown to Bay St Louis,” said 100 Men Hall Director Rachel Dangermond. “It continues the 100 year history of the Hall as a key performance venue.”
Gavino Loche is an award winning acoustic guitar phenom. “Gavino sounds like two really great guitarists playing together, combining percussive sounds, tapping and incredible finger style arrangements.” ~Chitarra Acustica
Adrian Raso plays a unique hybrid of Gypsy Jazz and Rockabilly on acoustic and electric guitars. His playing includes everything from Django Reinhardt and flamenco, to decades of Americana. “Adrian’s playing will grab you and never let go. Totally addictive." ~World Music Central
Jimmy Robinson is veteran guitarist, touring as a soloist performing his own intricate compositions. “Talent, emotion and plain old musicianship. Nothing short of brilliant." ~The Huffington Post
