Finger-Pickin’ Good: Yodice & Vermitsky 6/23/07

The Song Box Presents…
An Evening of Finger-style Guitar Music
Mark Yodice & Nick Vermitsky
Saturday, June 23nd, 8pm

$10 Suggested Donation – Advance Reservations Required (see below)

Mark Yodice proves that the art of solo acoustic guitar playing is alive and well.  The range of emotions he evokes is astounding, from quiet, thoughtful meditations to hyper charged percussive play.  If you love the acoustic guitar, or ever wondered why other people love it so much, you will not want to miss show. Mark Yodice will show you what the guitar is capable of, and what the artist can create with his mind and the right tools.

Of himself, Mark writes: “Essentially, I compose and play guitar, and sometimes other instruments. I picked up the acoustic around ’97.  Although I’ve played for much longer I discovered a lot of fantastic music around that time, and the guitar just clicked.  In addition to the composing I do session work and play along, with and behind some very talented performers. Also I’m one fourth of an improvisational side project called Orient Point Sessions. I also eat a lot of lentil soup and dislike doing laundry.” www.myspace.com/markyodice
Local guitar virtuoso
Nick Vermitsky is a 30-year veteran player who has studied classical music and the art of Big Bill Broonzy and the folksingers of New England.  He is a master of rapid-fire high-energy 6 and 12 string finger style playing a la Leo Kottke (one of his heroes).

In a recent review, The Island Ear said “Nick plays with incredible speed and delicacy… He has proved himself an artist of the highest quality”.  He peppers his performances with unusual arrangements of popular tunes as well as his own compositions and quirky humor.

The Song Box shows are presented by Jane Ross, George Trapani, and Dick deBruin.  This month’s show will be held in a recording studio at a private residence in Seaford (south shore Nassau County).  Seating is limited to about 35.  A pot-luck buffet is served during the break between performers – bring something if you’re feeling creative.

Please make advance reservations by sending an email to songbox@optonline.net .  You will be sent a confirmation and directions via return email.  Reservations can also be made at (516) 579-5365.  Leave a message with your name and phone number and we’ll call you back to confirm and give you directions.
