An Original Take on Holiday Music: Acoustic Guitar Summit

The Acoustic Guitar Summit is comprised of Mark Hanson, Terry Robb and Doug Smith, three virtuosic players who just released their new album “O Christmas Three” for the holidays. They’ll be playing a number of concerts around Oregon over the next few weeks in support of the record, including appearances in Portland, Wilsonville and The Dalles. Get more specifics on Acoustic Guitar Summit shows below and on the group’s website.

Hailed by many critics as the finest group of Fingerstyle guitarists in the country, they have had their music featured on Conan O’Brien, NPR and various other national outlets. Mark Hanson is best known as a Grammy Award-winning acoustic guitarist and publisher of popular guitar instruction manuals. Terry Robb is best known as a blues guitarist inspired by John Fahey. The group is rounded out by Doug Smith, who is also a Grammy Award winner and an international Fingerstyle champion.

The album O Christmas Three showcases both memorable Christmas favorites—check out their signature arrangement of the “Peanuts” song—and a few originals by Terry Robb.

Upcoming holiday performances:

December 7 – 7:30 p.m. at All Saints Parish, Portland, OR

December 8 – 7:30 p.m. at UCC Meridian “Frog Pond” Church, Wilsonville, OR

December 14 – 7:30 p.m. at The Dalles Civic Auditorium, The Dalles, OR

December 15 – 7:30 p.m. at Old Liberty Theater, Ridgefield, WA

If you can’t make one of their shows above, their new record is a welcome reinterpretation of holiday classics, and will create a relaxing backdrop for cozy December evenings in Oregon.
