Highly regarded young Brazilian guitarist Diego Figueiredo performed a recent Montana concert to benefit this year’s Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival, scheduled for August 26-31 in Bigfork, Montana. The annual event features a week of workshops for guitarists of all skill levels and evening concerts by notable artists representing a wide variety of genres. The Pat Metheny Trio will make its first ever appearance in the state, while other headliners include Robben Ford, Lee Ritenour, Livingston Taylor, Scott Tennant and the L.A. Guitar Quartet, Abraham Laboriel, and Darryl Stuermer. Figueiredo, whom George Benson hailed as “one of the greatest guitarists I’ve seen in my life,” raised funds that will make scholarships available for deserving student guitarists.
