Classical and flamenco guitarist Randall Ferguson will be playing music representing the history of the guitar, from renaissance court music to the exciting syncopated dance rhythms of Spanish flamenco, on instruments that date from 1785, 1830, 1850 and 1900 to present. In a combination recital/lecture/
demonstration format, Randall will play and talk about the history and evolution of the guitar, its design and music. Randall also includes information about the musical contributions of Martin Luther, a fine lutenist who did all of his composing on the instrument. Luther felt that one of his greatest contributions to the church was the inclusion of the congregation into the worship service through hymnody (later referred to as the Lutheran Choral Tradition). Please join us for this fantastic program!
