Saturday November 1st, 7:00 PM. Show will be staged at The Harmony Barn, 612 N. Center St., LaGrange, Ohio 44050,
Mike's Barn is very honored to welcome back what many consider one the finest guitarist in the world today, The legendary Adrian Legg. A guitarists' guitarist, Adrain has a reputation second to none in what is called finger style playing. Named the "Guitarist of the Decade" by the UK version of Guitar Magazine,
Not only is Adrian returning but we are also very honored to host his first stop in the U.S. for his debut Dead Bankers CD Tour.
Adrain has been wowing crowds across the globe and joins us for a very special evening of music mixed with some pretty entertaining wit and humor. The first question many may have is how does he do it, or perhaps how many fingers does this guy have? Adrain essentially mastered the instrument to make it sound like his own orchestra and uses an open tuning technique to tweak every note into something the guitar wasn't supposed to do or at least no one else can figure out. You will probably want to reserve your table early this is going to be a big deal. We have actually had people travel all the way from neighboring states to catch his show here.
"Legg is, above all, a guitarist of great power, invention and versatility… Through fast-fingered picking, spontaneously layering parts and occasional ringing harmonics, he sounds like an orchestra."
-St. Petersberg Time
"To say Legg plays a good guitar is like saying Menuhin saws a fine fiddle. This man is ridiculously talented."
"Quite simply, there is no one else like him," citing his "dazzling technique and equally large dollops of spirit, humor, passion, eclecticism and spontaneity."
"There are guitarists, there are axe-wielding maniacs, and then there are wizards. Adrian Legg is one of the wizards. He has enough technique to do just about anything he wants, but also the sensitivity to honour the contours of a melody." - Philadelphia Enquirer

Mike's Barn is pleased to introduce newcomer Crispin Swank. A classically trained guitarist from nearby Oberlin College, Crispen turns his talents to vocal arrangements with a large and equally talented ensemble. "Crispin Swank the Band blends folk, classical, and anything into eclectic, intricate songs. The songs are as invitations to experience and express the inner unfathomable through soaring flight of all voices and the staid liberation of the groove. The band, currently stationed in Oberlin, Oh, consists of Wiliam Overcash and Yuri Popowycz (violins), Tatiana Sutherland (viola), James Vitz-Wong (bass), Kaeli Mogg (voice), Dan King and (Louis) Pino (percussion, and Crispin Swank (guitar, voice). Crispin Swank will release his first studio album, Turn, in January."
