The debut of StringShot featuring Roy Rogers, Badi Assad and Carlos Reyes will take place at the Grass Valley Elks Lodge on Nov.10 as part of The Center for the Arts OnTheGo series.

These three artists have joined together to form a musical “tour-de-force,” blending their artistry and talents to create a new synthesis of blues and Latin music.

Roy Rogers is not just any slide guitarist — an eight-time Grammy-nominated producer and recording artist — renowned for his live performances around the world as well as his collaborations with John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt and Ray Manzarek, among others.

Badi Assad (from Brazil) was ranked by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the world’s great guitarists. Classically trained, she has received numerous international awards in her prolific career.

Carlos Reyes is well known for his supreme virtuosity, not only on the violin but on the Paraguayan stringed harp. Classically trained as well, he has performed in many diverse genres of music worldwide.
