Listen to the Guitars That Changed the World

Van Manakas

Hurleyville, NY – As the music of the American south migrated to the north, across the country to the west, then across the ocean and back again, it was the guitar that carried the message.

Join Little Sparrow and special guests, Sunday, May 1, from 2-4 p.m. for a celebration of the guitar in acoustic, folk, country and rock music.

The show will focus on the acoustic music that became the basis for rock and roll. This trip will take you in and around the early 1970s, but there’s bound to be some modern examples and golden oldies too.

Guitar virtuoso Van Manakas will be the featured performer. Van is a master of bluegrass, rock, country swing and jazz guitar.

The Concert will be held at the Sullivan County Museum, 265 Main Street, Hurleyville. The event is free. Donations are appreciated and directly support the music.
