Solo Guitar by George

Music By George

George Sawyn, Guitarist



    The perfect background music for your wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, or brunch - solo acoustic guitar by George Sawyn.

    The instrument is the traditional classical guitar, gently amplified to cover a room and provide musical atmosphere, without interfering with conversation.

    The music covers a wide variety, diverse and yet familiar. It draws from the classical composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, and Dvorak; the "Standards" as sung by Frank Sinatra, Nat Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Tony Bennett; and popular songs of the 60s, 70s, and 80s by such stars as Nora Jones, The Beatles, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, and George Benson. In addition, special requests from you or your guests are welcome.

    The performer is a 38-year veteran of the Chicago music scene, guitarist George Sawyn. Over the years, George has worked with many of Chicago's finest musicians and bands, playing many styles of music including rock, disco, country, jazz, and classical, and has acquired a wealth of musical repertoire and experience. But his specialty is the solo acoustic guitar: soft, gentle, unobtrusive.

    Since relocating to Door County, Wisconsin in 2010, George has entertained thousands of Door County residents and vacationers at local venues such as The Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club, Thorpe House Inn in Fish Creek, Pasta Vino in Ellison Bay, and Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. He has also provided ceremony and dinner music for dozens of weddings and other private events.
