FRESH Productions and Marketing is proud to announce two North American guitar clinics and a music jam to be given by legendary UK Guitarist, Steve Rothery! Sponsored by Jack Dent Custom Guitars, the Community Arts Café, Asheville Music and Art and FRESH Productions and Marketing, these events will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans, guitarists, and musicians to learn more from one of the music industry’s most acclaimed and respected artists.

Steve Rothery, guitarist with renowned UK Prog rock group Marillion, and his solo project, The Wishing Tree, has recently been featured in Classic Rock, Guitar World and Guitar Player Magazine and he will be demonstrating his melodic and atmospheric technique to playing and writing and describing his approach to working in the studio. Musicians will also have the rare opportunity to play with Steve live in a jam to be hosted by the Community Arts Café, Winston Salem, NC.

Marillion, recognized as one of the best Progressive Rock bands of all time*, have sold over 12 million albums during a career which has lasted 30 years as a wall full of gold and platinum albums will testify. Steve’s tasteful melodic style has been acclaimed by both fans and other established players alike, and his music has been covered by other bands such as Dream Theater.

Steve Rothery has found the perfect instrument with which he can fully evoke his legendary artistic expression in Jack Dent Custom Guitars. Made of the finest woods, designed with the true musician or collector in mind and offering technical attributes that are unique only to his instruments, Jack Dent Guitars are synonymous with superiority, superb functionality and uncompromising design. Rothery is the first to own a custom SR Model that bears his name and sets a new precedent for  tonal quality in the electric guitar.
