at Tangled String Studios at Lowe Mill, 2211 Seminole Dr , Huntsville, AL Time 3:00 PM. Admission $8
Tangled String is in RR 7, ground level just off the parking lot with the water tower. The wood-floored performance space has superb acoustics and should go well with Phil's 1988 concert Ramirez guitar. Audience members are welcome to bring a beverage.
The concert will include works by Barrios, Merlin, Peter Maxwell Davies, Bach, and Piazzolla. Featured will be two works by Costa Rican composer and Grammy winner Edin Solis, the Pasaje Abierto and Tambito Josefino. The Danza from Pasaje Abierto was used in Phil's music video with film maker Jon Sawa.
Bill Kanengiser of the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet wrote: "That is AWESOME!! Really amazing visuals, cool piece, and fantastic playing. That director did a wonderful job; super- high level of creativity and quality. I loved all of it, but I think my favorite shot was that extreme slo-mo of the 6th string vibrating: Wow! Great work again! Man, LAGQ needs to have something like this! Does this guy ever film in LA?"
The composer's response was "Many thanks Phil!!! Very good work and excellent cinematography!" The Tambito is an ebullient Afro-Caribbean piece that has the guitarist playing percussion on the guitar, intricately interweaving that with traditional guitar techniques. It will be the next music video by Jon and Phil. Information about the concert is available at 256 797 1382, and Tangled String Studio on Facebook

Flying Monkey , Huntsville, AL Time 7:30 PM. Admission $15
If you love live acoustic music Michelle Malone (Michellemalone.com)solo acoustic with Phil Weaver solo classical guitar at the Flying Monkey Theatre is an event not to be missed. This show has consistently been a big draw for several years running with two superb performers, one with a C.F. Martin dreadnaught steel-string guitar made in Nazareth, PA, and another with a Ramirez Elite classical guitar from Madrid. The listener gets to enjoy two different styles of music that contrast and complement each other. Michelle has received rave reviews in the New York Times, Guitar Player, and Rolling Stone and several of her CD's have been on the Grammy ballot. Here's a quote from the New York Times- "the kind of singer and songwriter who can jolt things into overdrive". This past year Michelle has been on the road promoting her latest CD Day 2. She's coming from California to play the Huntsville show.
