Composer and guitarist Kaki King is known for her percussive and jazz-tinged melodies, energetic live shows, use of multiple tunings on acoustic and lap steel guitar, and her diverse range in different genres. In SEI, ("six", in Italian), guitar movement and dance take over the stage. The guitarists Kaki King and Tamar Eisenman become dancers, coordinating their whole bodies to perform the rigors of both choreography and composition. Multiple guitars on stands are spaced out strategically and featured differently with lighting, in a design that allows music and movement to be created between the guitarists.General admission: $20Non-Juniata Students and Seniors : $12Special rates for members of the Huntingdon County Arts Council
