Beckman Institute Auditorium
Presented By: Caltech Folk Music Society
An inventic guiarist, now living in Salt Lake City, Chris Proctor as 11 albums to his credit, and we've had trouble getting his schedule and ours to match these past few years, so the Caltech Folk Music Society has booked him a year and a half in advance! He's worth the wait.
Chris is a musical adventurer whose voice is the acoustic six and 12 string guitars. His music takes listeners through a fascinating world of moods and textures. His influences include traditional American folk, Celtic, blues and classical, but his style is all his own. The music always maintains a strong sense of melody as he combines rich textures and flawless playing. In live performance, Chris has the opportunity to describe how each of the pieces came to be composed or arranged. If you are a guitarist, you will be amazed at what he does, and there are always some in the audience who come to watch and learn from this master of the six and 12 string guitars.
