Tony McManus: “Gnossienne No. 1”
 
Peghead Nation instructor performs his solo guitar arrangement of the Erik Satie classic at the 2016 Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration.
January 17, 2017

Shot at the concert stage of the inaugural Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration last October, this video features Peghead Nation Celtic Guitar instructor Tony McManus playing his arrangement of Erik Satie’s “Gnossienne No. 1.” Part of a trio of compositions (referred to as “Trois Gnossiennes”) written for piano around 1890, the piece has an easily recognizable melody and a melancholy mood. Tony included the piece on Mysterious Boundaries, an album of solo steel-string guitar arrangements of classical compositions.

In 2017, the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration will be held August 25–27 at the beachside Fess Parker resort in Santa Barbara, California. Tony and Peghead Nation co-founder Teja Gerken will once again join the lineup for the festival’s workshops and performances.
