Vicki Genfan House Concert

  • Apr 13, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are very excited to be having Vicki Genfan appearing here at ECMS. Vicki is the most phenomenal guitarist we’ve ever heard. She was the winner of Guitar Player Magazine’s ‘Guitar Superstar 2008’ contest. She uses 32 different tunings and a unique aggressive, harmonic tapping style that is very rhythmic. As if that’s not enough, she is a fabulous vocalist. Search for her on Youtube and you will find out a lot about her. Here is the link to her “Atomic Reshuffle” that won her the Guitar Player Magazine contest. She not only performs her own songs but also does wonderful arrangements of some classic covers like ‘Norwegian Wood’ and ‘Groovin’. We had Vicki here for a house concert a couple of years ago, and she also played at a benefit for my grandson. She is a great person as well as a great guitarist. A suggested donation of $20 for the concert will go entirely to Vicki.

Vicki teaches guitar and has offered to hold a guitar workshop for us along with the house concert. She teaches tunings, picking, and her famous harmonic tapping. The workshop will be two hours long. The donation is $20 for the workshop or a combined amount of $35 for both the workshop and concert. Once you've seen her credits, you'll realize what a deal this is!

You can sign up for the workshop at our "sister" meetup group  designed for those who want to share their musical talents:

Here is her official bio. You can see more at

Guitar Player Magazine’s 2008 “Guitar Superstar,” Vicki Genfan defies categorization. A unique and fiercely original musical talent, she has been called the ‘Jimi Hendrix of acoustic guitar.’ “While others make noise with tapping stylings, Genfan understands the power of melody and instead makes music.” - Kirk Albrecht, Drawing from folk, jazz, pop, soul and world music, Vicki has a distinctive style that pushes the boundaries of the singer/songwriter genre. An international phenomena, Vicki is lighting up stages in venues as diverse as the International Montreal Jazz Festival, Germany’s Open String Festival, Italy’s Soave Guitar Festival and Festival Across Styles in the Czech Republic. She has four CDs to her credit and four instructional DVDs, and in 2009 Luna Guitars unveiled the Vicki Genfan Signature Guitar built by Luthier Gray Burchette.Vicki has enjoyed teaching privately and in groups for over 25 years and brings her warmth, humor and inspiration to all who have experienced her many workshops, clinics and classes. “If I could play like Vicki, I would stay home and entertain myself” – Steve Vai.

    So disappointed to miss this but I've come down with the flu. :-( Hope I'll get another chance to catch her in the future.

    I thought I could attend, but it turns out that my Sister and Brother will be in my parents hometown this weekend. They live in WA and WI. I'm sorry I'll miss this event.

    Since the workshop and concert combined will run from 2 until around 7, we are encouraging people to bring something to share for a potluck meal in between the workshop and the concert.

    I just went on youtube to watch her play and was very impressed especially with the Joni Mitchell tunings. Looking forward to this

    I would love to attend. However we will be vacationing on the Gulf Coast, and on that date I think we will be heading to New Orleans from Destin, FL. Looking forward to the next one.
