Acoustic Guitarist Takes FRCC Music Series Stage Nov. 11

Michael DeLalla, acoustic guitarist, composer, and recording artist, will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, at the Brewing Market as part of the Music Series at Front Range Community College, a community college in Colorado.

In a performing and recording career of more than two decades, DeLalla has brought to the forefront of acoustic music his delicious brew of traditional influences from around the world, steeped with his classical training and seasoned with his jazz, Celtic and folk stylings.

Beginning in the 1980s as the driving force behind Philo/Fretless recording artists Oxymora, the seminal group that Tom Cole of National Public Radio called “the cutting edge of New Acoustic Music,” DeLalla has forged a distinguished and storied career on stage and studio from his fluency on classical, 12-string, and steel-string acoustic guitar and memorable performances that showcase gifted improvisation and dazzling technical facility that never sacrifices the richness and poignancy of his compositions.

Admission is free. The Brewing Market is located at 1520 S. Hover Road, Longmont.
