6 GUITARS is a pitch perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Chase Padgett delivers a virtuosic performance as he becomes six different guitar players – each with their own distinct voice, views and musical style (Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk and Country). From a 19 year old rock prodigy to an 87 year old blues man, each character plays music, shares their history with music from discovery to mastery, and then celebrates or skewers the other genres. As each character dives deeper into their heartfelt and hilarious takes on music and life, we see that the barriers of music aren't as concrete as we think. With plenty of laughs and songs from all genres, this show is for the music lover in all of our hearts.
