First Friday with guitarist Neil Jacobs and readings by Jeff Worley, Leatha Kendrick, Richard Taylor, Marcia Hurlow and others

$10

$5 with student ID

This First Friday will set a new high mark. 12-string guitar master Neil Jacobs will perform music from his latest CD. Additionally, we will host a round-robin reading from a plethora of poets, including Jeff Worley, Richard Taylor, Marcia Hurlow, Jane Gentry Vance, George Ella Lyon, Leatha Kendrick, Lynnell Edwards, and Joe Survant, all included in the newest University Press of Kentucky's The Anthology of Kentucky Poetry.

Neil Jacobs is truly a master of the acoustic 12-string guitar. With his own style of playing that the St Louis Riverfront Times describes as "mesmerizing" and the Austin Chronicle describes as "the rockin'est since early Leo Kottke", Neil covers a full spectrum of styles and dynamics, touching on music diverse and varied as Gypsy, World, Balkan Folk, Jazz, and Fingerstyle guitar. A self-taught musician, Neil draws inspiration from his world travels and experiences. His most recent focus includes the Gypsy music of Eastern Europe and the Balkans, which is showcased in his third CD "American Gypsy." For that CD, he draws from his first hand knowledge of Eastern European Gypsy, Balkan and World Folk music to create his riveting compositions.
