Virtuoso bluegrass guitarist Mark Cosgrove will be the featured performer during the South Jersey Acoustic Music Society’s monthly meeting on March 14. Doors open at 7 p.m. at the Medford Arts Center.
Cosgrove is a nationally known musician who previously won the U.S. National Flatpicking Guitar Championship in Winfield, KS and has shared the stage with many bluegrass legends, including Jerry Douglas (of Allison Krauss and Union Station), among others.
Cosgrove will be playing in a trio with rhythm guitarist Peter Lorch (of Stone Mountain Road) and bassist Larry Cohen.
Cosgrove typically plays much larger venues such as bluegrass festivals and concert theaters. This will be an opportunity for SJARMS members and visitors to see him perform in the MAC’s intimate and acoustically pure setting.
Following the performance, he may even hang around and join in on the music sociey’s monthly jam.
