Internationally acclaimed guitarist Loren Barrigar will appear with his son LJ Barrigar. LJ is an up-and-coming guitarist influenced by the infectious stylings of Tommy Emmanuel and Chet Atkins. Since Loren was last at the Music Hall, the duo has been performing shows from house concerts to theaters mainly on the east coast.


Loren started playing guitar when he was only four years old, and by the time he was six, played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling down in Central New York, he has been in constant demand as a studio musician.

Loren's finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER”, “The Young and The Restless” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel, the Australian guitar sensation. He has also recorded with Multiple Grammy winner and legendary producer Lloyd Maines.

In 2010, Loren made a guest appearance at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society {CAAS} in Nashville with his pickin' pal from New Zealand, Mark Mazengarb. His solo concerts include favorite songs from seven decades, as well as his originals all featuring exciting guitar work and memorable vocal stylings. 

James Horan is a guitarist living in Jamesville NY. Having become interested in the guitar are the age of 14.

He is now an active guitarist as a solo performer as well as a member Great Lakes Guitar Society, Guitar League, Syracuse Friends of Chamber Board Member and Great lakes Guitar Board Member.

Deeper than skin - Reggie Harris & Greg Greenway.jpg

Deeper Than The Skin
featuring Reggie Harris & Greg Greenway

Meet & Greet Reception 6:30
March 25th $16 - $19


 “Deeper Than the Skin” is an experience of singing and listening… of experiencing a connection so deep that it makes you laugh, smile, cry and reconsider what you know about our history.  It brings together a remarkable journey that started 30 years ago. 


Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway are two friends… one Black, one White… one from the North; one from the South.  Musicians, storytellers, students of history and world travelers, born 3 days apart. Two separate narratives forged into one powerful friendship aimed at finding common ground and helping others to do the same.


Oswego has a history of being a sanctuary city for Freedom Seekers— when Oswego was a stop on the Underground Railroad and for Jewish refugees during WWII.  In fact, Oswego has more known UGRR sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places than any other county in the U.S.  Oswego’s story extends beyond our borders into neighboring counties (and a neighboring country!) with roots spawned in the South.

Special Guests Tim Hotchkiss, Allie Proud, Pastors Andrew & James Hinman, Ed Elsner, Dot Willsey, Audrey Hurley, and Kelly Jordal who represent the Bristol Hill Church, Starr Clark Tin Shop Museum, Gerritt Smith Estate and gift, the UGRR Consortium of NYS and the Safe Haven Holocaust Refugee Shelter Museum.


Prior to the evening’s performance, concert goers will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with our guests representing organizations dedicated to keeping the history of our region alive.  They will be able to take with them brochures, information on future events, and purchase items for sale which support their cause.
