6 Guitars is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and unforgettable characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes 6 different guitar players – each with their own distinct voice, views and musical style (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk and Country). Each character plays music, shares their history with music from discovery to mastery, and then celebrates or skewers the other genres.
“I don’t need fancy chords for country. Just play G. What’s wrong with G? If your chord has a number in it you’re a jerk.” With plenty of laughs and songs from all genres this show is for the music lover in all of our hearts.
Since the show’s premiere in 2010 6 Guitars it has earned numerous awards, rave reviews and standing ovations all over North America. It has relentlessly sold out houses in every festival it has appeared in and won Pick of the Fringe for both Edmonton and Vancouver. It is also one of the top 5 highest grossing acts in the history of the Winnipeg Fringe Festival where it sold almost 3000 tickets in 12 days.
Hilarious, charming and at times surprisingly poignant, 6 Guitars is a show so good, you’ll want to see it again and again.
