Every year we honor a living guitarist/ composer. This year we spotlight the legacy of educator/ performer Mick Goodrick who inspired countless guitarists in over 5 decades of teaching. 

March 12 at 8 pm we’ll present a live concert at soapbox gallery in Brooklyn feat. students of Mick, with Julian Lage, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Steve Cardenas, Joel Harrison, Kate Schutt, Kenji Herbert, and others.

The artists will perform duo and solo music inspired by Mick's legacy and feature a first-ever meeting betweenJulian Lage and Europe's premier jazz guitarist, Wolfgang Muthspiel in a rare visit from Austria.
Other artists, Bill Frisell, Tim Miler, Nir Felder, Mike and Leni Stern, Lage Lund and Ben Monder, will pre-record segments that will be included in the event. For more info on Mick:
“When Nels Cline and Fred Frith played their first public duet it didn’t always sound like guitar music. It sounded, at times, like a sanitation truck’s trash compactor, like a collapsing carillon, like a slowed down train wreck. That’s the beauty of the Alternative Guitar festival…which features guitarists who don’t just pick and strum.”

- Jon Pareles, The New York Times
