Spokane based, award winning guitarist and singer, Josh Snodgrass will perform a free concert, 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15, at Raging River Community Church, 31104 SE 86th St in Preston.

A portion of the concert will be instrumental featuring guitar performances of songs ranging in style from Christmas carols like “Silent Night” to a stunning rendition of “The Hallelujah Chorus.” His beautiful arrangements demonstrate the vast possibilities of the acoustic guitar.

“I’ve had the great opportunity to study the work of some of the best acoustic guitarists in the world. I’ve tried to take the techniques I’ve learned and add something new,” he said.

Snodgrass learned to play guitar at the age of 6 from his father. After playing in church during his childhood years, he became the lead guitarist of the Gospel bluegrass group, The Smoothgrass Boys, which gained notoriety in 2002 during the folk music revival. Later he learned a rare technique, called hybrid picking which allows Snodgrass to play the melody, bass line and rhythm all at the same time on an acoustic guitar.

He tours full time, performing over 120 concerts per year. You can hear his music at www.joshsnodgrass.com.
