Acoustic guitarist Luca Stricagnoli to perform in Kent Oct. 22

At Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center as part of the Spotlight Series

Luca Stricagnoli performs as part of Kent’s Spotlight Series at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22 at Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center, 10020 SE 256th St.

Stricagnoli, born and raised in Italy, is an acoustic guitarist known for his unique style and innovative playing techniques, according to the Kent Arts Commission. His original approach to music has garnered over 100 million views on his music videos and led him to perform at venues across the globe.

Using up to five guitars in the same piece, modified capos, and self-conceived stratagems, Stricagnoli continually leaves his audiences in awe and wondering what’s next for the up-and-coming guitarist. In addition to his musical abilities, he brings an enthusiastic energy to the stage. His music has been featured in countless magazines and TV channels and has grabbed the attention of world-famous artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Walk Off The Earth.

Stricagnoli has been a Spotlight Series audience favorite twice previously as part of the popular International Guitar Night shows. This will be his first solo concert in Kent.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $26 for seniors and $15 for youths. Tickets may be purchased online at kentarts.com, by calling 253-856-5051 or in person at the Kent Commons, 525 Fourth Ave. N.

Spotlight Series is presented by the Kent Arts Commission and Kent Parks, Recreation and Community Services, and partially funded by 4Culture and a variety of business and individual sponsors.
