Guitarist weaves sounds

The acoustic guitarist has performed all over the world, from Paris and New York to Uganda.

The presentation is classical, yet the music itself defies existing styles – this is not jazz, blues, folk or celtic. A young person once expressed his amazement that he was hearing ‘psychedelic chill on an acoustic guitar’ and that moniker stuck.

Residing in Victoria, Waters has grown a strong west coast following.

Waters performs at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Nanaimo Oct. 15, 7:30 p.m. Tickets $20 from Thirsty Camel or at the door. Waters also performs a house concert on Protection Island on Sunday afternoon. Please call 250-754-7176.
