Join legendary guitarist Charlie Hunter along with amazing vocalist Lucy Woodward and drummer Derek Philips for an intimate musical adventure at the historic Woodacre Improvement Club. Proceeds from the event support Lagunitas Public Schools.
With a career spanning 25 years and almost 20 albums, Charlie Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative writer and bandleader. He has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer, D’Angelo and countless others. He is widely considered the authority on the seven and eight-string guitar, and continues to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms.
Hunter has previously recorded for the venerable Blue Note label, Concord, Ropeadope, GroundUP and others. His recent independent venture is steered by his motivation to release music that most inspires him. Critics have touted his genius technique, but it’s his profound artistic sensibility that propels his original music. Hunter’s signature style of writing and performing has secured his place as one of today’s great guitarists.
Lucy Woodward was featured on Snarky Puppy’s Family Dinner, Vol. 1 album and has been touring with them for many years. Snarky Puppy bandleader Michael League and keyboardist/arranger Henry Hey (David Bowie, Forq) co-produced her fourth solo album which was released on GroundUP/Verve/Universal in 2016. She has recorded or performed live with Rod Stewart, Chaka Khan, Celine Dion, Nikka Costa, Carole King, Snarky Puppy and Joe Cocker.
Beer and wine and light snacks available to purchase.
