Classical guitarist to perform at Guild Thursday

Classical guitarist Jeff Bianchi is the featured performer at the next Creative Arts Guild In Concert program.

The Williamson, N.Y., native began performing in his teens throughout western New York. He earned performances at the Rantucci International Guitar Festival as well as the nationally recognized Ithaca Guitar Festival. His concerts continued with his move to Atlanta in the summer of 2002.

Bianchi performed electric guitar from 2005-2007 and toured nationally with country acts Young Guns and Chace Roberts. He resumed his solo career in 2009 and toured throughout Georgia. Since then he has toured nationwide. His current repertoire includes a variety of works by Ferdinand Ignace Hinterleithner, Leo Brower, Williams Lovelady and Jose Luis Merlin.

Bianchi performs at the Creative Arts Guild on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Guild’s Jonas Performance Hall. Admission is $5. Children in laps are free.

This marks Bianchi’s second performance at the Guild.

 “I am very excited to be able to work with the Creative Arts Guild again. I really enjoyed being part of the In Concert series back in 2012,” Bianchi said of returning to Dalton. “The people were wonderful and it was a fun evening. I was really happy I was invited back.”

    Since my devotional last month, many claiming to be followers of Jesus have written the Forum of this newspaper, wrongfully proclaiming God doesn’t require followers of Jesus to obey the moral laws God gave to Moses and Israel — reputably known as the Ten Commandments. The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!
