Adam Tully tangos for Highline

By Kelsie Leggett - Staff Reporter



Exceptional tango guitarist Adam Tully will be perform- ing a concert at Highline next week.

Tully is a guitarist hailing from New York and Buenos Aires. He specializes in solo guitar tango music.

The performance will be held at Highline on Nov. 28 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. in Building 7.

Dr. Ben Thomas, Highline Music Department Coordina- tor, will be joining Tully for a few duets on the bandoneon.

"Adam Tully is a world- class practitioner that has worked with some of the fin- est tango musicians today," said Dr. Thomas.

Tully has spent the last 20 years performing and perfect- ing his craft.

He is known most for his talents in the tango genre, but also performs world and in- strumental music.

After trying his hand at multiple instruments, Tul- ly discovered his love for the guitar at the age of 14.

However, he didn't begin playing tango until many years later in Argentina, where he attended college.

"The guitar is one of the first tango instruments," said Dr. Thomas.

Tango is a genre of music that combines Italian, Span- ish, Afro-Caribbean, and German inf luences.

Buenos Aires, where Tully resides, has deep roots in the culture of tango music.

Though its power comes

from the merging of different genres and poetry, its noted for melodic and sophisticated sounds.

Tango music holds its own as an art form, said Dr. Thomas.

"Tully is a lovely compos-

er. His original tango songs show a deep appreciation for the long tradition of tango music." said Dr. Thomas.

His music can be found at www.adamtully.com/eng.

The performance is free and open to the public.
