The Classical Guitar of Daniel Roest! 

Sacramento Guitar Society's Artistic Director Daniel Roest has consistently wowed audiences at innumerable solo and ensemble performances, in genres ranging from the Renaissance period to our present time. The owner of the F & Main Gallery in Isleton, California, sums up Daniel's abundant tributes in this way: "Some knew him by reputation -  some not - but . . . people took a seat . . . and sat spellbound." Come discover if YOU'LL be able to resist the enchantment!

Thursday, November 16, 2017 Noon-2:00pm

Hey Good Looking, Whatcha' Got Cooking?

Join the singalong and be sure to Act Naturally - if you do, you'll still be Walking After Midnight with that Peaceful Easy Feeling long after the concert is over!
