Guitar virtuoso Neil Jacobs will perform at the Arts Depot in Union City, Indiana on Thursday, October 21; the show begins at 7 p.m. The second of Darke County Center for the Arts’ casual Coffeehouse concerts, the program will feature a diverse array of music played on the 12-string guitar.
A self-taught musician, Neil Jacobs draws inspiration from his world travels which have taken him to Spain and Russia where he studied and performed, as well as to war-torn Sarajevo as part of an international cultural delegation. “Neil can and does play everything,” said Keith Rawlins, Artistic Director for DCCA. “Fingerstyle, folk, jazz, Balkan, Gypsy, world, and classical music – you’ll hear all that and more from this mesmerizing performer,” Rawlins concluded.
The Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by Tom and Julie Graber, Steve and Eileen Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. DCCA also receives funding from Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund, and Ketrow Foundation. In addition, the Ohio Arts Council helps fund Darke County Center for the Arts with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
DCCA’s Coffeehouse Series offers performances in a relaxed, intimate setting; food and drink will be available for purchase prior to the concert as well as at intermission.
