Brazilian guitarist returns to Errington Hall Saturday night

Before the show Celso Machado will host a workshop at the Old Fire Hall as part of the Islands Luthiers' Guild Guitars by Hand event

After selling out local shows in 2010 and 2012, Brazilian guitarist, percussionist and composer Celso Machado is returning to the Errington Hall this Saturday.

“I really enjoy playing there,” said Machado. “It’s so relaxed … and so easy to interact with the audience.”

According to the news release from the Hall, Brazilian music blends classical European, African, Portuguese and Indigenous influences. Machado has made this  musical tradition his own over the past forty years by adding other sounds from around the world.

Saturday’s show starts at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. The evening will also include an intermission where coffee and baked goods will be available for sale.

General admission is $20 and tickets can be bought now at Cranky Dog Music, Heaven on Earth and the Errington Store.

Tickets for youth age 5-12 will be available at the door for $5. Children under 5 are free.

Earlier in the day, Machado will also host a workshop at the Old Fire Hall as part of the Islands Luthiers’ Guild Guitars by Hand event. Admission to the workshop is $10 and starts at 4 p.m.
