Colin McAllister and Wayne Wilkinson Duo
March 7 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Wayne and I are excited for a ‘mini-SoCal tour’, which kicks off at Palomar College Concert Hour. This a great venue, and best of all-it’s free!
The Wilkinson McAllister Duo is pleased to present a variety of jazz repertoire, from original compositions to their own arrangements of classic jazz standards. Wayne Wilkinson is a headliner jazz guitarist who performs and tours across the country and internationally. For over four decades, Wayne has shared the stage with iconic jazz musicians, world class performers and a President of the United States. An artist with Benedetto guitars, GHS Strings, and Jim Dunlop picks, Wilkinson is known for his high-octane melodic playing which world-renowned jazz trombonist Bill Watrous noted “is the greatest guitar playing I’ve ever heard.” Colin McAllister is Director of Humanities at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. His performances as a guitarist and conductor have been hailed as ‘sparkling…delivered superbly’ (San Francisco Chronicle), ‘ravishing’ (San Diego Union Tribune) and ‘an amazing tour de force’ (San Diego Story), and he has recorded on the MicroFest, Summit, Innova, Centaur, Naxos, Albany, Old King Cole, Vienna Modern Masters, Carrier, and Tzadik labels. Colin is endorsed by PRS Guitars and is an Artist Partner with Taylor Guitars.
