La Guitara lineup named for Strawberry

Though the final Strawberry schedule was posted a few weeks ago, we now have more detail about the composition of one of the more intriguing acts, La Guitara, which is on the bill for the Friday night show. La Guitara is a loose assembly of about 15 female guitarists that perform in different configurations depending on the schedule and venue. The goal of the project, according to organizer Patty Larkin, is better define the contribution of women to the history of modern guitar.

For Strawberry, La Guitara comprises folk-rock singer-songwriter Larkin, jazz guitar standout Mimi Fox, and cross-genre fingerpicking stylist Muriel Anderson. Expect to see the three musicians perform individually and as an ensemble.
