On Saturday, April 6 at 8 PM, Peppino D’Agostino will perform the last performance of the Tom Humphrey Guitar Series at the Ritz Theater.
D’Agostino has been hailed as “a guitarist’s guitarist” by Acoustic Guitar magazine, and holds many top guitar awards, but the San Francisco Chronicle encapsulated the essential difference that distinguishes his music when it dubbed him “a poet.”
The Tom Humphrey Guitar Series serves to honor the memory of the legendary Hudson Valley-based luthier who passed away in 2008. The idea for the concerts came from Tom Humphrey just two months before his death. In a series of meetings with Chris Silva of the Bardavon and Tricia Haggerty Wenz of the Ritz Theater and Safe Harbors of the Hudson, Humphrey laid the ground work for a guitar series at the Ritz which in its first four seasons has presented performances by Odair Assad, Pete Seeger, Cindy Cashdollar, Bucky Pizzarelli, Mary Gauthier and many others.
The concert will be held in the Ritz Theater Lobby at 107 Broadway in Newburgh. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling the Ritz Theater Box Office at (845) 784-1199, through TicketWeb at (866) 468-7619, or via www.ritztheaternewburgh.org. All tickets are general admission and include a reception with the musicians immediately following the concert. Seating is limited. The Box Office opens at 7:00 pm and concerts begin at 8:00 pm (doors open at 7:30 pm).
