FRIDAY! 8 String Classical Guitarist Paul Galbraith

The recital will include works by Bach and Mozart. 


Galbraith’s unique playing position was first revealed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1989. His guitar is supported by a metal endpin, similar to that of a cello, which rests on a wooden resonance box. The instrument has two extra strings, one high, one low. Both the guitar’s extraordinary design and Galbraith’s playing style are considered groundbreaking development in the history of the instrument, increasing its range to an unprecedented extent.


Born in Scotland and residing in Switzerland, Galbraith has lived in Malawi, Greece, London, and Brazil, where he was a founding member of the Brazilian Guitar Quartet. He will be a Visiting Scholar at Columbus State University in Georgia at the Schwob School of Music this fall. Read more here.
