Glenn Roth & Dana Merritt
February 24, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST$12
Come join us for a night of acoustic music with Connecticut based artists Dana Merritt (singer-guitarist) and Glenn Roth (Virtuoso acoustic guitarist).
Touted as “The modern Michael Hedges”, Dana Merritt effortlessly blends the acoustic guitar with sounds that mirror orchestral or electronic music.
Glenn Roth is a finger-style guitarist, his thumb riding the baseline and the melody driving all. His compositions suggest multiple guitars, but it’s really just one guy, ten flying fingers, one instrument. Glenn’s songs suggest moods and narratives that compel the listener to fill in the details. Glenn has released five CDs to date: Innovations (2005), Busker (2006), Into the Unknown (2010), Welcome Home (2016), and a holiday CD. His original compositions have been hailed as “sheer virtuosity” and “delicate, accomplished solo acoustic guitar work” (PLAY: New Haven Arts & Entertainment Weekly). Glenn has shared bills with Stephen Bennett, Monty Montgomery, Tuck & Patti, Bucky Pizzarelli, Carl Verheyen, Don Ross, Antoine Dufour, and Vicky Genfan, among others.
