Cythara: The History of the World According to the Guitar with Andre Feriante and Troy Chapman

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

Journey through the history of the world according to the guitar. Andre Feriante and Troy Chapman present their personal collection of musical instruments from around the world. All are relatives of the Guitar. From the ancient Oud and Tar, to the small but mighty Ukulele and Charango. This duo of virtuoso musicians will present a selection of music that corresponds to the origins of each instrument. 

Feriante and Chapman cast a wide net, going back to the roots of strings from all continents… the banjo from Africa, the oud from the Middle East,  sisters of the Sitar from India…the lute from Europe, the  baroque guitar, many of the various South American instruments  that migrated from the old world and reinvented themselves as the tres, the cuatro, or the charango.  

Andre and Troy will begin the show by assembling two archaic instruments  simulating the very beginning‘s of the first string plucked over a Drum. The History of the guitar will progress chronologically through time and bring us to the arch top / jazz, acoustic and electric guitar’s and the roots of American music. It will be an informative, entertaining and educational celebration of the most popular instrument in the world; the guitar!

Educational, Enlightening, Entertaining:  Cythara is a delightful ride through musical history.
