"Eclectic" Guitar Concert (February 17, 2015)

The "Eclectic" Guitar Concert, presented by St. David's Bastrop Emergency Center, will feature Grammy-winning rock guitar legend Eric Johnson and Grammy-nominated jazz guitar hero Mike Stern. This concert wraps up their epic nationwide Eclectic tour and is the ONLY tour date in the Central Texas area.

The "Eclectic" Guitar Concert will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 17th at 7pm at the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Center for the Performing Arts, located at 1401 Cedar Street in Bastrop. Concert proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bastrop County, a nonprofit, youth development agency working to empower local youth to become caring, productive, responsible citizens.

Tickets are priced at $40 for preferred seating, $25 for general admission, and $125 for VIP access, which includes reserved up-front seating and access to a post-show, backstage reception with the artists. Tickets can be purchased online here.

Eric Johnson and Mike Stern are two of the world's most celebrated guitarists. Bona fide guitar heroes in their respective fields–Eric Johnson in the rock realm and Mike Stern in the jazz world–go toe-to-toe on "Eclectic," their recently released album collaboration, recorded in Austin.

Featured on the cover of the February 2015 issue of Down Beat magazine, the pairing of Johnson and Stern is described as a "virtuoso-meets-virtuoso collaboration that spans the rock-jazz divide. Their aptly titled CD 'Eclectic' incorporates a diverse array of styles, including gnashing rockers, rockabilly-tinged up-tempo blues, jazzy swings and horn-driven pop cookers."
