Phil Keaggy returns home for an early April concert series at DeYor Performing Arts Center

Phil KeaggyPhil Keaggy has not only had a successful music career for over 40 years, but also, has become a highly regarded music producer/engineer, studio musician and guest artist. He is as much a visually captivating artist live as the sounds he brings to life. From the multiple continuous loops to the angelic melodies, tapping beats, riffs, and anything but ordinary solo runs, Keaggy surely creates a sound for all the right senses which will leave you nothing less than fascinated. Keaggy has bloomed into one of the top fingerstyle guitarists, and from the once very young and gifted guitarist many recall from Glass Harp, continues to share his testimony and gospel through his music’s voice and instrumentation. He will be sharing his God given gift to his hometown of Youngstown at the Ford Family Recital Hall (Venue of DeYor Performing Arts Center) on Saturday, April 5th at 8:00pm and Sunday, April 6th at 2:30pm. Tickets for the event can be reserved through DeYor, or by calling 330-744-4269. The following Youtube videos will give your eyes and ears a taste of what is expected:
