Music magic in Sutter Creek

By From page B5 | January 25, 2013

A night of award-winning fingerstyle guitar and bass with Tim Farrell and Michael Manring is happening at the Sutter Creek Theatre, 44 Main St. in Sutter Creek, on Friday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m.


With so many guitarists trying to make their mark these days, it’s not easy being a ‘trailblazer.’ Yet, that perfectly defines Tim Farrell. His fingerstyle playing and original compositions display an elegant simplicity that celebrates the purity of the acoustic guitar. Tim is a rare kind of musician, with the ability to both entertain an audience and inspire future generations of players.

“Hailed by many as the world’s leading solo bassist, Michael Manring has been pushing back the boundaries of what’s possible on the bass guitar for over two decades. While his technical skill and innovations always make an impression, it is his ability to communicate on a profound emotional level that most touches listeners,” wrote John Schroeter, founder of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine.

Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 the day of show. Call 916-425-0077 or go to for information.
