The sounds of the acoustic guitar will fill Frostburg State University's Lane University Center on Friday, September 28 when Edgar Cruz performs Live at the Loft. The concert, which is free and open to the public, is set for 9:30 p.m.
With a repertoire of more than 400 songs, Cruz is known for playing requests during his performances. His playlist encompasses classical, pop, rock, Latin, international, standards and easy listening, including such classics as "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Tequila," "Pipeline" and "Sabre Dance."
Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Cruz grew up with the sounds of Latin mariachi music under the inspiration of his father Manuel. After obtaining a bachelor's degree in music from Oklahoma City University in 1986, he embarked on a full-time career performing, arranging, publishing, recording, distributing and marketing his music internationally.
"...Edgar Cruz is a wizard. How else can one explain how he captures the sounds of an entire band and reduces them to a single guitar?" says John Schroder, publisher of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine.
