Marty Williamson, one of the most prolific guitarists in the downstate area, has been a shining star in bands like Hello Dave, Matt Poss Band, and Heather & Marty for many years. As a guitar teacher, he has taught hundreds of area players how to hone their skills. In 2017, Marty put together a group of some of the area's most beloved guitarists for a showcase he called 6 String Summit. Now in its third year, the show is set to feature a brand new cast. John Spicer (Patoka, IL) -- songwriter, singer, and blazing guitarist for his band, John Spicer and the Fightin' Side. Tad Feezeland (Charleston, IL) -- known for his rock solid work with Jac Freeze, Hillbilly Rockstars, and Black and Blue. Wally Hooker (Carbondale, IL) -- the lead guitarist for Diamond Dog will show off the licks that he honed playing in Pop Rocks and Leather Pistol. Myles Baker (Nashville, TN) grew up playing music with his dad, Dirk, and learning from the local legends. He has played in CeCe and the Bandits and Larry, Dirk, and Myles. Dicky James has been playing blues up and down the Mississippi River from Chicago to Clarksdale, MI for thirty-plus years. He has truly learned from the best.
The 6 String Summit band includes musical stalwarts Jeremy Adam, Adam Burtch, and Kyle Heynen. Special guests will include Danny Shelton, Jackie Lawson, and Heather Latta.
