Solo guitarists Glenn Roth and Anthony Troy play the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck on Sat., Oct. 9. the show starts at 5 PM.
Glenn Roth is not your typical commuter from Connecticut. Instead of a briefcase, he carries a gig bag. His workspace is the vaulted splendor of Grand Central Terminal or the tunnels and platforms of the New York City subway system. A literal underground sensation, Glenn is a licensed performer in the MTAs Music under New York program, playing for the most distracted and demanding audience in the world: legions of workers rushing to jobs throughout the Big Apple. And his fingers work magic, creating a soundscape of compelling melodies that invite them to leave the city rush behind on an aural escape.
An award-winning composer who is equally acclaimed for his technique on the guitar, Anthony Troy is known for his compelling compositions, diversity in styles and versatility across all genres on the instrument. Anthony is a recording artist for international label FRETMONKEY Records, an alum of the B.F.A. Fingerstyle Degree program at UWM and one of very few GRAMMY Awards Recording Academy members. When Anthony is off stage, he is found teaching students world-wide through his online music school ART Guitar School and online courses.
ABOUT OUR SHOWS:
We ask respect for social distancing, please, and conscientiousness on masks. Not everybody is vaccinated yet and our venue wants to advise caution and consideration for others. Masks are optional outside but required if you go inside Best Video.
No cover charge but please bring cash for the musicians’ tip jar. This has been a real hard time for musicians, almost all of whom have seen their live performance income dry up. (There will also be a Best Video tip jar for donations.)
Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
