The Guitar Arts Series Presents: Come enjoy music and Lisa Little Fine Art display!
Lisa Little Art: Local artist Lisa Little will be showing paintings at each of the four keystone events in 2011-2012. Click HERE to visit her Facebook Page and view images of some of her work.
We are very excited to launch season two of the CSU Bakersfield Guitar Arts Series. This season we made an effort to diversify our offerings. Adding one jazz quartet concert (Jim Scully 4-tet) as well as a new music duo concert (TIN/BAG) we feel as though we are better representing the current trends in guitar artistry. We have not turned our back on the more classical tradition - on the contrary - we are bringing a top U.S. player (Steven Walter) as well as an International Sensation (Johannes Möller) to beautifully represent the classical guitar side of the equation.
To Bakersfield music supporters Jazz has long been the hallmark of the CSUB Music Department and these additions reflect that tradition, while we continue to strive to renew the classical guitar tradition in Bakersfield and Kern County .
If you are interested in being informed about this exciting series, please go HERE to be added to the dedicated mailing list. Thanks in advance and see you at the concerts!

TIN/BAG, the bi-coastal duo of California trumpeter KRIS TINER and New York guitarist MIKE BAGGETTA, deals with a music that is spare and ethereal, exploring the spaces between jazz, traditional musics, and contemporary composition. Since 2004 Tiner and Baggetta have toured extensively, re-investigating the roles and possibilities of their instruments through their original music alongside inventive renderings of works by Bob Dylan, Thelonious Monk, Sun Ra, Carla Bley and Anthony Braxton.
Their 2005 debut CD There, Just As You Look For It on pfMENTUM Records was met with enthusiastic reviews and continues to receive international airplay. Tin/Bag’s second CD And Begin Again, released in 2007 on Evander Music, featured several new compositions along with two extended works for quartet with virtuoso L.A. clarinetist Brian Walsh and the acclaimed NYC jazz percussionist Harris Eisenstadt. In 2010, supported by a Subito grant from the American Composers Forum, Tin/Bag recorded a new set of original compositions for their latest album Bridges released in 2011 on the MabnotesMusic Label.
