GREG DOUGLASS GUITARIST 

Greg Douglass is an internationally known guitarist and songwriter who is probably best know for his electric guitar playing with artists like Van Morrison, Steve Miller (Greg co-wrote the hit  song “Jungle Love” for Steve), Eddie Money, and many other great artists. Steve Tilston, one of the best guitarists in the UK, called Greg, “The best electric guitarist I’ve ever heard.” last June when Greg toured there. Greg’s first love, however , is the acoustic guitar. “Rock pays the bills”, said Greg, “but I’m truly at home with an acoustic in my hands.” Greg’s repertoire on acoustic ranges from classical to delta blues to latin jazz to beautiful arrangements of Beatles songs. Greg is at home in a wide variety of situations on solo guitar. He has played background music at fine restaurants, and he has shared the concert stage with some of the best acoustic finger style players in the world, including Leo Kottke, David Lindley, and Jorma Kaukonen.With a wide variety of styles at his fingertips…literally…Greg’s goal is to read the mood of the audience he’s playing for and enhance the mood of the event appropriately. Greg can go from his solo version of Carlos Santana’s “Europa” to “Girl from Ipanema” to a rocking version of the Beatle’s “Day Tripper”  if that’s what the crowd wants on a given day.Greg’s two solo acoustic CDs, “The Natives Are Restless” and “Holiday Favorites”, continue to sell briskly on various internet download sites like iTunes and Amazon. In addition, one of his solo acoustic pieces was featured on the Steve Miller album “Living in the 20th Century”.Greg’s solo guitar work is the ideal addition to any event, whether it be in a concert situation or as background mood music. (Greg’s reputation as a world-class player who has appeared on scores of albums whose combined sales total close to 15 million units also adds a little extra something special to any event.)

Mr. Douglass proudly endorses and exclusively plays Taylor acoustic guitars.

Performing 25th and 26th from 2:00 to 3:30pm, in the Paddock, Del Mar Fairgrounds.

From the Broadway stages of New York to the concert stages of Europe, in his four decades of music, Elliott Lawrence has pretty much done it all.  As a Broadway singer/dancer performing in shows like JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, GODSPELL, PIPPIN, BUBBLING BROWN SUGAR, THE WIZ and A MATTER OF TIME, the strength of Elliott’s performances kept him working in consecutive shows for over 15 years.  Elliott went back to school to perfect his craft as a jazz vocalist. He then moved to Europe where he performed in clubs and concert venues across the continent, studying and performing with jazz notables like Mark Murphy, John Hendricks, Nancy Wilson, Eric Knight, and the Charlie Parker Museum All Star Big Band.

Elliott now, back in the states, sets his sights on a new musical challenge – becoming the jazz guitarist he’s always wanted to be. His vocal training and Be-Bop      influences have helped him to apply his finely tuned musicality to the guitar and the transition has been seamless.  Elliott currently performs throughout Southern California as a solo guitar artist.

Elliott’s melodic baritone voice and tasteful guitar licks give a special smoothness to a melody and his in the pocket scatting can take any Be-Bop standard to another level. 
Elliott’s mantra is “Music is not the end in itself but a means of expressing who we are…it’s who we are that touches people.” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPEAKERS

Concetta Antico grew up in Australia, and even as a child possessed a passion for art that knew no bounds, producing the images of Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet and other great impressionists that won awards and the attention of classmates and teachers. After her mother died, at just 16 years old Concetta left her home to find a job and an apartment while working to finish high school and put herself through college.

In 1985, she moved to Los Angeles where she married and moved to San Diego. It was in this new beloved city that Concetta opened her first studio, soon to feature a gallery filled with her astoundingly vibrant paintings. It wasn’t until December 2012 that Dr. Jay Neitz, a world-renowned leader in the field of color vision, discovered she was a “Tetrachromat,” someone possessing an incredible genetic gift to see up to 100 million colors.
With new-found clarity and sense of purpose, Concetta continued to paint what she saw, excited to give the world a taste of the beauty she was able to make out in her surroundings. Today she still lives in San Diego, selling the inspiring art she continues to create that appears in world-renowned art showcases and art galleries.

 

Concetta will be a guest speaker at the SDIWS on Sunday 26th April & 2:00pm in the Paddock, Del Mar Fairgrounds
