The Summer Concert Series at HPR's Atherton Performing Arts Studio features guitar duo 2ality on Saturday July 13. The group combines the talents of Steve Grimes and Steve Stusser, both of whom are guitarists and woodworkers by profession. Expect a gumbo of guitar-forward styles, drawing on blues, Americana, folk, and funk traditions. Maui guitarist/songwriter Steve Grimes has released three albums of original songs: Labor Of Love (2010), The Ocean Road (2016), and Assorted Chocolates (2017). His music is a gumbo of styles, from acoustic ballads, jazz ballads, pop, folk, bossa nova, Celtic, funk, and Americana. In 2012 he won a national songwriting contest for his song "Perfect Stranger." Grimes is also a renowned luthier, having built guitars for George Benson, Steve Miller, Walter Becker, Willie Nelson, and others. After touring for 15 years in numerous rock, pop, funk, and Americana bands, guitarist Steve Stusser decided to take a different course. In 1987 he started one of today's most sought-after high-end custom furniture companies in Seattle: Stusser Woodworks. For the last 20 years, Steve has combined his passion for woodworking with his passion for music, and has risen to the level of virtuoso player.
