Phil Keaggy

When: Thu., Oct. 25 2012

While Phil Keaggy regularly dismisses the story that Jimi Hendrix once called him the best guitarist in the world, the persistence of that rumor speaks to the excellence of his playing, as do numerous subsequent Dove Awards and Grammy nominations. The fact that he can write and sing like Paul McCartney doesn't hurt, either. The Ohio native was still a teenager when his band Glass Harp recorded at Electric Ladyland Studios, and while he's long since traded acid rock for contemporary Christian fare, Keaggy's original music is as vital and engaging as ever. Hear for yourself tonight in the geodesic splendor of Stargazers Theatre (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com). Tickets for the 7 o'clock concert are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. — Bill Forman
