MADISON, NJ - Please join us on Sunday July 28th at 4pm for a fun, family-friendly summer’s afternoon performance by singer-songwriter & guitarist Gary Reed who will perform in the beautiful historic garden of Macculloch Hall Historical Museum. Mr. Reed has reemerged as an accomplished and contemporary voice -- with lyrics that resonate from that earlier time. An outstanding guitar player and performer, he is a premier fingerstyle guitar player and guitar champion winner who writes and plays unique solo guitar arrangements ranging from Joplin to the Beatles, New Age to Yazoo and “Finger Popping” original tunes. His style comes out of the 1960’s revival of the black blues guitar players and performed with guitar guys from New York City and San Francisco. Gary started his performing career in the Village in the late sixties and early seventies being a regular player at the Bitter End, Folk City, Café Wah, Max’s Kansas City, The Village Gate and most of the clubs in the Village at that time. He had the opportunity to open for some great players such as: Jerry Jeff Walker, Billy Joel, Randy Newman, Joe Walsh and Jeremy Steig.

Gary will perform in the Garden at 4pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore through a variety of summer blooms in the garden and relax on the large lawn during the program. Guests should bring blankets or chairs and may bring picnics. If you would like to get a taste of Gary’s music, visit his websitewww.reverbnation.com/garyreed
