I had a wonderful tour in Europe, with more posts to follow as I get photos and time. This concert venue was a 500 year old cavern beneath a municipal hall in Spittal an Drau, Austria. The cavern had been discovered and reconstructed some years ago, and is now used for cultural events. Special thanks […]
Great return to Rockford and Charlotte’s Web at the JustGoods performance space, after an absence of several years. John Connell took these shots and processed them a bit, so thanks to him.
A beautiful setting for the audience (and for myself as performer) at Jim and Kathy Richardson’s Small World Gallery in Lindsborg. Jim is a famous freelance photographer with innumerable National Geographic and Nature Conservancy photo shoots to his credit, while Kathy creates marvelous jewelry of all sorts. Jim’s framed photos on the wall, Kathy’s jewelry […]
My second show at Steve’s- the lovely, quirky performance space in Carbondale, with guitars of all varieties floating above and around the stage and the audience, and non-guitar decor ranging from bobblehead Elvis dolls to antique radios to old French horns. Worth the visit just to see the space, but stay for the pristine audio […]

Darby, Montana’s Last Best House Concerts “Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Chris Proctor played to a full house and the crowd was way into it. People were craning their necks and standing up to see how he was creating all those beautiful sounds as Chris performed two sets of his original compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes, […]
I performed in Tricesimo, Italy, at a fine festival called “Madame Guitare,” where I was interviewed afterwards by journalist Andrea Carpi for Italy’s leading guitar magazine, “Chitarre.” If your Italian is good enough, you can take a stab at reading the interview/article, or at least look at the pictures, here. It’s in the February 2009 […]
Here I sit, performing on a handmade Kawakami guitar at the first incarnation of the Newport Guitar Festival since it moved to Miami Beach. It’s scheduled again for 2010. Check the Video link for another performance from that festival, this time on a McKnight guitar.
