LONG BEACH, Wash. — Terry Robb, widely considered among the best living acoustic blues guitarists, returns to the Peninsula Arts Center 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Robb’s dynamic finger-picking style has amazed audiences worldwide and earned him international acclaim.

A member of the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame, Robb is an icon of the vibrant Pacific Northwest music scene. In 2011, having won the Muddy award for best acoustic guitar an unprecedented 19 consecutive years, the Cascade Blues Association honored Robb with a namesake award: the “Terry Robb Acoustic Guitar Muddy Award,” bestowed annually on a guitarist from the Northwest.

Robb’s musical catalog ranges from solo acoustic guitar, ensembles and bands to full orchestras, and includes elements of fingerstyle, blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, Latin, hymns and spirituals.

The Peninsula Arts Center is located at 504 Pacific Ave. N., Long Beach, Washington.

Admission is $15 at the door or online through Brown Paper Tickets, or call Bill Svendsen at 360-901-0962. Wine, beer and other refreshments are available for purchase.

Concerts benefit the Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization.
