Olav Chris Henriksen plays many different styles of music spanning the century from about 1820 to 1920, including preludes, waltzes, popular tunes, blues, jazz and ragtime, using six different guitars from his own collection. Beginning with concert waltzes by Trinitas Huertas (1824) and continuing with Hawaiian “lap steel” guitar music (popular in the 1910’s) and some small treasures for ukulele, Henriksen will also play jazz of the 1920’s on the Gibson “L5” archtop guitar. There will be music by De Goni, Holland, the Bickfords, Ka’ai, Lucas and Lang, among others.
