The Acoustic Evenings series at the Athenaeum showcases some of the finest acoustic musicians in San Diego. Three acts fill each program and attentive audiences delight in the intimacy of the unplugged storytelling format. Refreshments are available at the intermission reception and post-concert meet-and-greet. San Diego Music Hall of Fame founder Jefferson Jay curates and hosts the concert series. The project advances the Athenaeum’s commitment to support diverse San Diego talent. Acoustic Evenings is an unforgettable and personal experience for San Diego music lovers.
On Friday, April 1, Jay features guitarist Greg Douglass, who has toured and recorded with Van Morrison, Duane Eddy, Link Wray, Hot Tuna, Dave Mason, and Eddie Money and cowrote and played on the Steve Miller Band hit “Jungle Love”; local music hero Fred Benedetti, who studied classical guitar with Segovia but also plays jazz, some folk and rock, and even a little flamenco; and Story and Tune (Californian poet Karyn Thurston and Aussie singer-songwriter Ben Grace), who share a real-life love story despite the odds.
