December 11, 2010 at The State Theatre in
Performers include Martin signature artists Jorma Kaukonen, Peter Rowan, Woody
Mann, and Rory Block, as well as mandolinist
Barry Mitterhoff with Kaukonen, Tony Rice
with Rowan, and Craig Thatcher, along with
special guests. Martin’s Dick Boak will host
Boak. “For many years, we have wanted to
collaborate in the creation of a Martin con-
cert series like this. We are looking forward
to seeing this concept take shape in the
years to come.”
Live musical performances have been a goal
of Boak and C.F. Martin for some time. It
wasn’t until they paired with Molly Sword
McDonough, founder of New England-area
concert promotion company Pitcher Sword,
that it became a reality.
Boak and McDonough hope to bring the
concert series to college campuses and theaters everywhere, beginning with the East
Coast. Prospective future venues include the
Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, Tarrytown
Music Hall in Tarrytown, New York, and
Patriot’s Theater in Trenton, New Jersey.
According to Boak, other Martin artists like
Stephan Grossman and Steve Earle are interested in future concerts.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of
an event that will feature solo and ensemble
performances by some of the most promi-
nent guitar players in the world,” said Mr. PedalJuiceConsumer-PremiereGuitarSm copy.pdf 9/17/10 5:18: 44 PM
