Buenos Aires guitarist Gonzalo Bergara swings into Arcata with his quartet and a new release, “Walking Home”. After touring extensively with the John Jorgenson Quintet, Bergara has emerged a virtuoso composer and lead guitarist, mixing a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina, to forge his own style. His all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of the 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired sound. As His first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine. Joining Bergara are Jeffrey Radaich on rhythm guitar, Leah Zeger on violin and Brian Netzley on upright bass.
