Edgar Cruz

Edgar Cruz - Lake County Concerts

February 18, 2012
7:30 p.m.

Guitarist Extraordinaire
He creates a symphony of sound with only a guitar.

Concert-goers are captured by the precision, speed and complexity of Edgar Cruz’s guitar mastery as he offers an exceptional selection of cool jazz from his vast repertoire.

A headliner at the prestigious Chet Atkins Guitar Festival in Nashville since 1995, Edgar has recorded 17 CDs and two DVDs, covering a wealth of genres: Latin, classical, international, rock, jazz, mariachi, romantic, Christmas and original music.

For more than a decade, he has been named the Oklahoma’s top performing artist, top acoustic guitarist – or both. Edgar performs more than 200 concerts a year and has played throughout the U.S., Europe and South America.

At each stop audiences are treated to the jazzy riffs and spectacular picks of a magical performer.


“...dynamite on strings.”
