One person, seven guitars and an oud, Gord takes students on an exciting musical, social and geographic journey through the history of guitar with Arabic, classical, country, blues, jazz, and rock styles. Through the evolution of the instrument we see how music crosses borders to facilitate cross-cultural learning. With loops, percussion and projections, Gord engages students through listening games, audience participation and visual learning aids. You’ll sing, clap along and dance to everything from traditional Egyptian to Johnny Cash, and Muddy Waters to AC/DC.All Ages.
