The Friends of the Winfield Public Library are hosting their annual Pickin’ Parlor concert at the library on Monday, September 11 from 6:30-8:00 pm. Featured guest musicians are Brian Henke, Helen Avakian with Dave Irwin, and Mark Sganga. The concert is free, and all are welcome.
Brian Henke’s unique guitar style has been called everything from Folk to New Age to Neo-Classical to Pastoral or as Brian likes to call it “a big stewpot of everything, stirred up, simmered and served to taste.” Helen Avakian is the 2014 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion as well as an award-winning singer/songwriter voted Favorite Acoustic Act by Rhythm and News Magazine. Mark Sganga is recognized internationally through his headlining and performances in world festivals, concerts for NY charities, and as a music educator.
“Brian Henke’s music displays both amazing technique and a wonderful sense of calm.”
– Pete Huttlinger (National Fingerstyle Champion)
