Artcore will be hosting Grammy-winning guitarist Bill Mize this Thursday at Our Savior's Lutheran Church.

Known as a fingerstylist, Bill's music has a penchant for transporting listeners to a different realm that will have your soul smiling in no time. According to his website:

Bill is a past winner of the National Fingerstyle Guitar Competition at The Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas.  Guitar Player Magazine has labeled this event the “U.S. Open of guitar competitions." Bill received a GRAMMY Award for his collaboration with musician and storyteller David Holt on the recording Stellaluna, and has been featured on the popular guitar compilations "Windham Hill Guitar Sampler" by Windham Hill Records and "Masters of the Acoustic Guitar" by Narada Records. In 2009, Bill’s music appeared in the  Ken Burns documentary “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea." Mel Bay Productions transcribed Mize's second CD, "Tender Explorations," into a songbook, and his original compositions have been transcribed for Fingerstyle Guitar and Acoustic Guitar magazines.

The show starts at 7:30 on Thursday. Tickets are available at Hill Music, The Shade Tree, Cadillac Cowgirl, and Sonic Rainbow. Prices are:

Seniors (60 & over): $12.00
Adult: $13.00
Students and School Teachers: $7.00
