Darke County Center for the Arts will present Extreme Guitar Duo in concert at the Arts Depot in Union City on Thursday, October 25. According to DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins, Keith Knight and Don Alder, the energetic guitarists who make up the Duo, play a wide range of musical genres including modern finger-style guitar, delta blues, Appalachian folk, bluegrass, and calypso on 6-string and 12-string guitars, harp guitars, dobros, and mandolin, and frequently add vocals to the mix. The show, a part of DCCA's casual Coffeehouse Series, begins at 7 p.m.

“The Duo's collaboration takes audiences to the extreme edge of modern guitar finger-picking, thus the name,” Rawlins stated. “These two guys are monster players who deliver an unforgettable upbeat performance peppered with delightfully engaging stories that charm all ages and make the Extreme Duo a perfect fit for our Coffeehouse Series,” Rawlins concluded.

DCCA's Coffeehouse Series was created to offer performances by high quality artists in comfortable social settings where food and drink are also available. The Coffeehouse Series is sponsored by Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. Darke County Center for the Arts also receives support from local businesses, foundations, and the Ohio Arts Council, which helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
