St. Philip's Episcopal Church in New Hope will host internationally known guitarist/composer Peter Griggs in a concert, “Cafe Barcelona,” on Sunday May 19, 2019 at 3 p.m. 
Mr. Griggs will perform a selection of Spanish and Brazilian music, as well as several of his own compositions, at this wide-ranging program.  A highly skilled guitarist in flamenco, bossa nova, samba and other Latin guitar styles, he is also an expressive vocalist and will perform several classic Brazilian songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa in the concert.

Peter Griggs has presented more than 500 solo guitar concerts throughout the USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, the Low Countries, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe at art centers, festivals, museums, churches, jazz clubs and other venues.  His recordings are available on Folkways Records, Music of  the World, Treecastle Music and CD Baby.  He was based for more than ten years in Dusseldorf, Germany and now resides in Cold Spring, New York. 

Critics in Germany and the United Kingdom have hailed Griggs as "a master of expressive sounds" known for his "sizzling guitar playing" and "sophisticated and highly enjoyable" programs.  Germany’s Bergische Morning Post put it this way, “An almost unbelievable talent, Peter Griggs performs magic!"
