Greg Block Live

Event Date(s): 
Friday, November 16, 2018

Ambient-classical guitar composer Greg Block was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and mentored on guitar by Brian Griffiths of The Big 3. Greg is beginning to release his book of spells titled Book 1, including over 100 compositions for solo guitar with beautiful ink work by Lauren Plante.

The music of Greg Block is diverse and ranges anywhere from complex classical arrangements to meditative soundscapes; from sea-folk shanty’s to rock and roll. Greg takes much inspiration from literature, especially Tolkien’s High Fantasy and classic Russian literature like author Leo Tolstoy. Well suited to dance and movement arts, yoga, and meditative focus, Greg’s compositions can be brought to life on a range of instruments and are bound to inspire and please both audience and performer.
