Charlie Hunter

Guitar whiz Charlie Hunter will bring his unique fusion of jazz, funk and pop to Gilly’s (132 S. Jefferson St.) on Wednesday, October 27 at 8 p.m. Hunter, who grew up in Berkeley, California and is known for a diverse repertoire and comparisons to such greats as Thelonious Monk and Bob Marley, has released his second solo outing, Public Domain. Sean Westergaard of All Music Guide is among the many critics who have praised his artistry and technique over the years. Westergaard hailed Hunter as “mindboggling… an agile improviser with an ear for great tone.” His collaborators include John Mayer, Leon Parker and Christian McBride among others. General admission seats are $15. Tickets will be available at the door beginning at 7:30 p.m. For additional information, advance tickets or to hear music samples, call Cityfolk at (937) 496-3863 or visit online at www.Cityfolk.org.
