This concert will be a special edition of the Trinity Guitars Back Room Radio Hour and will air on Monday, March 16 on WRFA 107.9FM and will be streamed on www.wrfalp.com.
Of special interest is the fact that all four guitars have been built here in Jamestown by luthier Jim Holler. He will also have additional Holler-built guitars on display that evening. “It is so exciting to have the Fredonia Guitar Quartet in a return engagment at Infinity; they are all playng guitar I have built. It is like a family reunion,” Holler said.
Admission is free, and donations to Infinity Visual and Performing Arts are encouraged.
