Guitarist Peter Griggs performs outdoors at St. Philip’s

Posted

St. Philip’s Episcopal Church will host internationally known guitarist-composer Peter Griggs in a concert, “Cafe Barcelona,” at 3 p.m. Sunday Sept. 19.
Griggs will perform a selection of Spanish and Brazilian music, as well as several of his own compositions, in the wide-ranging program. A highly skilled guitarist in flamenco, bossa nova, samba and other Latin guitar styles, he is also an expressive vocalist and will perform several classic Brazilian songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa in the concert.
Griggs has presented more than 500 solo guitar concerts throughout the U.S., Germany, United Kingdom, France, the Low Countries, Scandinavia and eastern Europe, performing at art centers, festivals, museums, churches, jazz clubs and other venues. His recordings are available on Folkways Records, Music of The World, Treecastle Music and CD Baby. He was based for more than 10 years in Dusseldorf, Germany and now resides in Cold Spring, N.Y.

St. Philip’s Episcopal Church is located at 10 Chapel Road in New Hope.
The fall concert series will be held outdoors this year, on the church labyrinth, which will allow for social distancing. Guests are asked to wear a mask and be vaccinated. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held inside the church.
