Guitar for Guaraldi is an annual tribute series in Chicago devoted to pianist and composer Vince Guaraldi known famously for his work on the Charlie Brown holiday specials. Come get into the Christmas spirit, with the Mich Shirey Trio as they perform true-to-form guitar arrangements of the Charlie Brown Christmas album, along with favorites from Guaraldi’s catalog!

“Adapting the sound and swing of 88-note keyboard jazz to a stringed instrument is no small task, and the results aren’t always pleasant to the ear. (I speak from listening experience.) Mich, who has loved Guaraldi’s soundtrack since childhood, embraced the challenge and triumphed; his trio’s handling of this music delivers the same gentle, soulful spirit that makes that 1965 album a must-play experience every year.” – Derrick Bang, Author of “Vince Guaraldi at the Piano”
