From Bach to Hendrix! – Ben Verdery

Head of guitar studies at Yale University for more than 30 years, collaborations with guitar legends John Williams and Paco Peña, 22 recorded albums, and countless world tours, Ben is highly regarded as a leading figure of the classical guitar.

“First let me say, what a great honor it is to be asked to play and teach at this wonderful concert series!  

There will be Music that has been written for me by dear colleagues, a set of three works by JS Bach who was the reason I started playing classical guitar to begin with, two pieces of my own (one of which I’m writing now!) and arrangements that I’ve made over the years of Singer/Song Writers and Guitarists who continue to inspire.

I so look forward to playing for you all and meeting you!  

Now I must get to practicing and my writing this piece!!!  

Peace, love and guitars!”


At the conclusion of the 60min concert, everyone is invited to join Ben for refreshments which include complimentary beer, wine and cheese thanks to our good friends at Dainton Beer and Delinquente Wine!
