SOU Guitar Quartet Rocks The Beatles!

I caught this one on Friday with my special lady, Meghan.  
What an opener: four classical acoustics playing “Lady Madonna,” “Julia,” and “Yesterday.”  In a row! Then right into “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd.  Good way to soften a crowd before launching into Turlough O’Carolan and J.S. Bach.  David Kelly nailed David Gilmour’s solos on “Numb,” which is no small feat on nylon strings.  
A few photographers snooped around snapping pics, but they were all gone by the third song.  Meghan got sleepy, so we ducked out at intermission–I think the cushy seats in the recital hall did her in.
P.S.  If you are an SOU student and you don’t attend recitals, you are crazy.  They’re FREE for you and they’re good!  Everyone else had to pay $8 on Friday!  I just flashed my student ID.  Nice.
