The O&W Acoustic Stage
The Grove opens with the outstanding fingerpicking guitar talents of recent Pioneer High School graduate Ari Graine. Demonstrating confidence, refinement, and an ease with sharing his craft, be amazed at the intricacies of songs by Andy McKee, Calum Graham, and Michael Hedges. This style of acoustic guitar playing, using steel strings to articulate notes rapidly and hitting the guitar for acoustic drum stops, will be familiar from Kaki King or Badi Assad. Graine has played open mic at The Ark and with the Neutral Zone. Next fall he heads off to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston.
