MANZANITA — Eric Skye and Mark Goldenberg, two acoustic guitar masters, will play one of their rare duet performances at the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita 7 p.m. Saturday, March 3. Admission is $20.

Though often billed as an acoustic jazz guitarist, Portland-based Eric Skye occupies a unique niche between jazz, Americana and blues. Skye’s most recent solo release, “A Different Kind Of Blue,” a solo guitar re-imagining of Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue,” was listed in the top 10 acoustic albums of 2012 by Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

Los Angeles-based Mark Goldenberg is the consummate A-list session player and sideman. Goldenberg played lead guitar for Jackson Browne for 16 years. He has played on records for and toured with artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Eels, Chris Isaak, Willie Nelson and Peter Frampton. Goldenberg recently finished a two-year world tour with acclaimed pianist and actor Hugh Laurie. He is also a songwriter whose works have been recorded by Linda Rondstadt, Chicago, Pointer Sisters, Natalie Imbruglia, Eels and Chris Botti.

The Hoffman Center is located at 594 Laneda Ave.
