ASHEBORO -- Performing musical works spanning from Scotland and France to Argentina and Brazil, classical guitarist Jeff Bianchi will appear at the Asheboro Public Library at 7 p.m. Wednesday, November 9.
Bianchi’s concert, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is free and the public is invited.
Bianchi will perform Scottish lute pieces from the 17th century; the Suite in F# Minor by Laurent de St. Luc, a Finnish composer of the Baroque era who was a court musician for Louis XIV of France; Five Songs of Love for the Guitar by Jose Luis Merlina, an Argentinian guitarist and composer; and works of Brazilian guitarist Heitor Villa-Lobos, one of that country’s most treasured composers.
Born in Williamston, New York, Bianchi began performing at weddings and cafes while still in his teens. The attention he received playing concerts throughout western New York led to appearances in prestigious guitar festivals.
From 2005-2007, he toured with country acts Young Guns and Chace Roberts. He began solo classical tours in 2009, and has performed throughout the southeast, Texas and the mountain west.
He first performed at the Asheboro library last year.
He lives in Lanier Harbor near Buford, Ga., and is guitar instructor at Friendship Christian School in Suwanee, Ga.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 338-318-6803.
