Inaugural Steve Maase Legacy Guitar Summit

You Have Six Strings, Dude

Steve Maase was an amazing local guitarist and guitar teacher that came up early, working at Norman Petty's Clovis studio for instance. In case you want to know other folks that worked out there included Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings and a fellow named Buddy Holly. Anyway, Maase left a legacy in the many students whose work he helped cultivate and sustain here in New Mexico over the years. He taught thousands in these parts how to dig the guitar, and often visited with 80 to 100 students per week. He died in 2016, but his legacy lives on—here in the form of a memorial concert. The Inaugural Steve Maase Legacy Guitar Summit is held on Saturday, March 17, from 7:30 to 9:30pm at the Outpost Performance Space. Special guests include some of the master's protégés, including legendary, uber-chopped out session players like Mickey Wright and Tim Pierce. A Jackson ($20 in jazz lingo) gets you into one of the best displays of axe-handling you might ever witness.
