Michael Sheridan, classical guitar hero

Published March 21. 2013 4:00AM   Updated March 21. 2013 11:34AM

It's probably not accurate to say classical guitar is a lost art. But in this soundbite world of what-have-you-done-online-for-me-lately?, where assuredly guitar heroes John Mayer and Jack White will soon star in a reality show about lawn mowing, it's okay that you haven't heard much about contemporary classical guitar or Michael Sheridan.

Because we're telling you about him now.

Sheridan is a top-flight young artist based in New York City and making a significant name for himself within the culture of the music. He appears Saturday at the First United Methodist Church in Mystic - and the compelling program includes works by J.S. Bach, Isaac Albeniz, Agustin Barrios, Django Reinhardt, Antonio Jobim and Roland Dyens.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with White or Mayer; every once in a while, though, it's enlightening to see a guitar hero working a different style.
