Guitarist to play free outdoor concert in Silver City on Sunday
July 27, 2018
Bring a lawn chair and picnic to Silver City on Sunday, July 29 and enjoy live blues, funk and classic rock music by Mylo McCormick from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The 18-year-old guitarist will be playing on the town's outdoor stage, the Silver Pavilion, located adjacent to the town community center, known as the School House, at 385 High St.
McCormick has earned a reputation in the Tahoe, Comstock, Reno and Carson region as a skilled guitarist who plays riffs and solos in the style of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Born in Silver City, McCormick learned to play guitar with singer/songwriter/musician Will Rose. After moving to Carson, he began taking vocal lessons from Linda Badinger of Music Lessons Unlimited.
By age 16, McCormick was invited to join Mo'z Motley Blues, a Northern Nevada band performing blues-infused rock, pop, and variety music.
"Mylo fires up the audience and is the driving force behind the Motley 'blues' flavor," said band leader Monique De Haviland.
