As the culminating concert of each year’s week-long Acoustic Music Seminar (find out more about SMF’s Acoustic Music Seminar), a group of sixteen virtuoso string players showcase the fruits of their labor in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Lucas Theatre.
This year’s concert features these young players in musical settings with Associate Artistic Director Mike Marshall and clinicians Julian Lage, Bryan Sutton and Darrell Scott, in an evening that is guaranteed to be special. The annual Stringband Spectacular makes the case that American acoustic music is alive and well in our time.
“Stringband Spectacular really is one of the highlights of the festival. Many SMF programs appropriately feature established artists who are closer to the end than to the beginning of their careers, but the AMS finale fills the stage with 16 stellar musicians aged 22 and younger.”
