Bay Chamber Concerts’ 2019 Music@Dusk series continues Friday, March 8, with a performance by classical guitarist Derek Gripper at 6 p.m. in Union Hall, 24 Central St. Music@Dusk is an hour-long performance where concertgoers can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in an intimate setting.

Cape Town’s Gripper transcribes the kora music of Mali, including the music of Toumani Diabaté and other West African composers, for classical six-string guitar. The results mark a meeting point of the written tradition of Western classical music and the oral tradition of the West African griots.

Gripper’s album "Libraries on Fire" won a Songlines Award for Best African and Middle Eastern Album 2017. His next releases are a recording of Bach’s solo violin works, transcribed for guitar; a new record of African songs; and a duo record, including original compositions, with cellist Mike Block.

Tickets for Music@Dusk are $30, $10 for those younger than 25. For more information, call 236-2823 or visit baychamberconcerts.org. Next up, on March 29, is the Kobayashi/Gray Duo.
