Gus Woodrow – guitar
May 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The Wilhelm Family Vineyards live music program continues this week with another major Tucson talent, guitarist Gus Woodrow. Gus first gained widespread acclaim at age 17 with his appearance as a classical guitar soloist on NPR’s From the Top radio program. This momentum carried him forward to be selected less than a year later as one of eleven classical musicians from around the country to participate in National Young Arts Week in Miami. These early successes culminated in an extensive solo tour in Europe. Meanwhile, Gus won top prizes in 10 national and international guitar competitions.
Today he focuses his efforts on jazz guitar, and, drawing on a passion for writing music in diverse styles, he became devoted to writing his own compositions. Since early 2016, he has played regular concerts of his original music in various groups ranging from jazz trios to large rock bands.
