Over the past three decades, Michael Gulezian has established himself as one of the most significant solo acoustic instrumental guitarists of our time. Raising the aesthetic of contemporary acoustic guitar to a higher level with each new album, Gulezian has been named as a primary musical influence by artists as diverse as Michael Hedges, Willy Porter, and Henry Kaiser.
 
Not only technically breathtaking to watch, Gulezian is also known for his charismatic stage presence, offbeat humor, and genuine humility, which have earned him an ever-growing fan base. The atmospheric power, joy, and haunting beauty he creates onstage and in his recordings inspired a Dirty Linen reviewer to remark, “Gulezian messes with space and time in ways French composer Erik Satie could only dream of.”

 Jazziz publisher Michael Fagien describes Gulezian’s work as “unbelievable … incredible … music from another planet.” Grammy-winning producer Richard Adler writes, “Michael Gulezian composes, arranges, and performs some of the most complex and emotional music ever written for solo acoustic guitar.”

General-admission tickets are $18 adults, $10 youth 18 & under. For sale in advance at www.tix.com (no fees, search "Arrowhead Center for the Arts"), by phone 218-387-1272, and at the box office on concert night (6:00 pm).
