Paul Chasman is a guitar player’s guitar player, co-founder of the Acoustic Guitar Summit and a contributing writer to Frets and Guitar Player Magazine. But, after the release of his album “Guitar Festival,” Chasman had surgery on his left hand and could barely hold a G chord. In frustration, he wrote a song. And another, and another. Now, Chasman plays and sings, offering original tunes about life, love, dogs, cats and Muhammad Ali, with a lot of guitar and good sprinkling of satire.
He’ll bring that whirly mix to Lincoln City on Saturday, Oct. 10. Paul Chasman & the Great Gatleys will perform at the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 7 pm. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 at the door, with a $2 discount for all current LCCC members.
