Euro to perform tonight

PORT TOWNSEND — Trinity United Methodist’s Candlelight Concerts will hosts Joe Euro, a classical/neo-classical finger-style guitarist at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $15 per person. Half of the donation proceeds from this concert will go to Joe Euro’s chosen charity, Habitat for Humanity, East Jefferson County.

The performance also will be streamed live at and simulcast on KPTZ FM 91.9.

Trinity United Methodist Church is located at 609 Taylor St., across from the Community Center, in Uptown. Attendees should plan on arriving early — doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Masks are required for in-person attendees.

This Joe Euro Candlelight Concert performance will feature acoustic, instrumental neo-classical finger-style guitar, highlighting many of Euro’s neo-classical original compositions and some actual classical guitar pieces.

Some of his set may also include arrangements of some lite jazz standards, and most likely a few covers, and last but not least, a bit of his ambient space guitar pieces utilizing a digital reverb and a volume pedal, to draw down all that Taj Mahal-like reverb.

This is a sound he enjoyed developing and experimenting with when he moved to this area back in 1979 and would bring his guitar into the bunkers at Fort Flagler.

He also was able to get into the Cistern at Fort Worden, which also inspired him to use this Big Spacey Sound, which is now accessible with some of Euro’s guitarsenal of various guitars and gizmology.

Euro’s day job, The Wine Seller, was founded by him in 1982.
