Turkish Virtuoso Concert with Celil & Mehmet Refik Kaya
Saturday, February 28th at 7pm
Home of Sharon & Antonio Ugalde
Celil Refik Kaya returns, this time with his father—who is traveling all the way from Turkey—for an evening of Turkish music on oud and rebap that you will never forget. With a recent Carnegie Hall debut, Celil is one of the most extraordinary young talents we’ve ever seen. When he informed us that he loves to play traditional Turkish music with his father, and that his father would travel here from Turkey for a performance, we jumped at the opportunity. We couldn’t think of a more spectacular and perfect location for the concert than the Ugalde home near Zilker Park. You’ll see why!

Our very own Matt Hinsley, most often seen introducing the guitarists we enjoy at ACG events, will pick up the guitar for a performance at the lovely Westlake Hills home of Edwina Carrington.

The Fairview Austin, Jimi & Vivian Ballard
Superstar Russian guitarist Dimitri Illarionov returns to Austin, and the US, after ten years away. We are ecstatic to have been able to bring him to Austin for a few days during his tour. And we are thrilled to return to the breathtaking, newly restored historic home of Jimi and Vivian Ballard, recently opened as The Fairview Austin Hotel, just south of Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin.
