Enjoy a weekend of acoustic guitar from local masters as the Orlando Science Center continues to host live music to accompany their world premiere exhibit, GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked the World. Here is some background information on some of the artists performing:
Barry Brogan grew up with the old music, and his guitars have old souls. He plays vintage pieces from the Roaring Twenties and Thirsty Thirties, including blues and ragtime. His finger style arrangements are award-winning and he is a master with six-and twelve string, and bottleneck slide guitars. His favorite artists include Bessie Smith, Clarence Williams, Jimmie Rodgers, Fats Waller, and Robert Johnson.
Alex Ivanov is 16 years old and started playing guitar at age of nine. He is proficient in many genres from rock and blues to jazz and heavy metal. An Orlando native, he has played Biketoberfest and Bike Week in Daytona Beach, the 2008 International Kids Expo and the Winter Park Art Festival. Alex has shared the stage with Phil Stokes from the Pure Prairie League and Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd. Currently, Alex is writing and recording his own music.
