Atria Covell Gardens welcomes public to guitar concert

By From page A9 | November 10, 2011

Celtic and folk guitarist Christopher Dean will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at Atria Covell Gardens, 1111 Alvarado Ave. in North Davis. The community is welcome.

Fingerstyle and flat-picking guitarist Dean is not just a gifted exponent of Celtic and American folk music on the six- and 12-string guitar, a news release says.

In the Celtic tradition, he tells engaging stories and weaves Celtic and American folklore and history with his music — from haunting airs that take listeners far away to a land of the imagination; to laments that evoke past glory; to the familiar trinity of lively jigs, reels and strathspeys; to the music of Peter, Paul & Mary, John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton and other exponents of the American folk genre.
