Andy Hackbarth at UW on March 3

From a UW press release:

Colorado native and award-winning singer/songwriter Andy Hackbarth will perform a concert Wednesday, March 3, at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union ballroom in Laramie.

Hackbarth plays flamenco and classical guitar with upbeat pop/folk song styling. This event is free.

To pursue his love for music, Hackbarth moved to Nashville.

"You don't realize how much you have to learn until you move to Nashville," he said. "Truly great songs are so rare. It's the best feeling in the world to know that you've written a song in which every word counts; one that forces everyone who hears it to stop, really listen, and look at the world in a completely different way."

EDITOR'S NOTE: Torrington resident Andy Hackbarth is a recent addition to the Wyoming Arts Council artists' roster. Bring Andy to your community through an Arts Across Wyoming grant beginning July 1, 2010. FMI: 307-777-7742.
