Adrian Raso to play Fourth Friday concert celebrating new exhibitions at Guelph Civic Museum

GUELPH, June 13, 2017: Celebrate the launch of Guelph Museums’ new exhibitions with free admission and a free concert Friday, June 23 at the Civic Museum. Adrian Raso will perform as part of the Oh Canada Fourth Friday concert series to mark the opening of To the Gathering Place and Wall of Art: O Canada.

Local guitarist Raso is considered to be a remarkable songwriter and guitar virtuoso.  His music features a variety of styles showcasing his musical versatility. He has recorded two instrumental EPs and eight full-length instrumental albums.

To the Gathering Place, through personal accounts, artifacts and images, presents stories of those who have searched for new beginnings in Guelph. From the Attawandaron Nation that gathered to farm and trade, to the most recent newcomers journeying from across the globe, Guelph has been shaped and enriched by the individuals and families who have traveled to it.

Wall of Art: O Canada features artworks by David Grieves, Bruce Shapka, Eric Allen Montgomery, Urszula Hajdyla, and Kris Lewis responding to a theme that celebrates our national identity.  Wall of Art is a quarterly juried art show presented in partnership with Guelph Arts Council.

Opening remarks are set for 6:30 PM, followed by the concert at 7 PM.

Guelph Civic Museum is located at 52 Norfolk Street. Admission on Fourth Fridays is free from 5 to 9 PM.
