Free Guitar Clinic with Greg Morton!

Saturday, January 19, 2019, 2-4 PM at Chicago Store Eastside, 5646 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson! Our instructor is Greg Morton. There are not many folks alive who can say they’ve actually played with the great bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, but Greg Morton is one of them. A flat picking guitarist who appears to make playing completely effortless, Morton has been gracing Tucson stages ever since he moved here almost 20 years ago. Since then, he has appeared at the Tucson Folk Festival many times. And, if you’ve frequented La Cocina on a Friday evening, you will already have experienced Greg’s unique style and sound.
