To Perform at the Central Park Performing Arts Center
To classify Chris Duarte simply as a Blues Man is an understatement. In his own words, “rockin’ blues,” “punk blues,” or “ferocious blues” describes him best. Legend has it that Chris will play so hard that his fingers bleed in a set. The legend is true. (Photos attest!) Chris Duarte will be appearing at the Central Park Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets priced from $14.50-$29.50 Reserved Cabaret Seating!
Chris is a savant, a sorcerer of tone, a master at channeling the spirits and sounds of great musicians of our past while remaining completely recognizable in his own sound. He has shared his stage with many of the greatest musicians of our time as well as the multitude of local musicians he meets on the road. From his many years as a side man in Austin, he easily changes roles from front to side, graciously allowing all to share the conversation of the jam. Chris Duarte’s music is ever-changing.
In many interviews, Duarte says, “Music must evolve.” His own early offerings often become magical journeys into changing tempo and jazzy interludes before returning to their core. With such a vast catalog of recordings, there are no two shows alike. Every set list is different, and each song may be offered distinctly, based on the feel of a show and the audience. For those reasons, loyal fans often return to a Chris Duarte show again and again, and always walk away awed and satisfied to have witnessed such a legendary, but humble guitarist.
