LINCOLN CITY – It will be a gorgeous grab bag of great guitar on Thursday, Nov. 12, at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Two local favorites, Terry Robb and Tom Owczarzak, are featured in the next QuaranTunes concert, offered in-person with socially distant seating as well as live streamed. Tickets are on sale now at https://lincolncityculturalcenter.thundertix.com, or by calling 541-994-9994. Showtime is 7 pm.
Terry Robb is one of the finest acoustic guitarists on the international scene. His signature fingerpicking style has earned him acclaim from worldwide audiences, esteemed music critics and his distinguished peers. Incorporating elements from Delta blues, ragtime, country, swing and jazz, Robb has built a special blues sound that has made him a legend in his prolific music career spanning four decades. Robb has been inducted into both the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame. In 2011, the award was renamed the “Terry Robb” Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award to honor his landmark contributions to blues music.
Opening the three-set concert will be Tom Owczarzak, also known as Tom O. He’s known for his warm style and original songs, and his longtime dedication to music education through the Americana Project. Tom has been playing guitar since the late 1960s, in the last generation of teenaged working musicians before “disco killed the live band.” He’s also an award winning goldsmith and jeweler.
