Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

Treat yourself with a stunning performance by world-class guitarists Bert Lams and Fabio Mittino on Wednesday, January 10 at 7 pm. This is a rare chance to hear internationally-renowned talent in the intimate listening room of the Kentucky Coffeetree.

Fabio and Bert are excited to bring you their new project: music by Gurdjieff/De Hartmann, arranged for two guitars.

“The music covers a vast territory: Armenian songs, Hindu melodies, Kurdish melodies, an Orthodox Hymn, and several Sayyid dances … most of it has never been played on the guitar before. Arranging and discovering this music was like opening a treasure chest. We immensely enjoyed discovering these hidden gems and we feel that this wonderful music deserves to be heard and played.”

Gurdjieff was a philosopher of Russian/Armenian descent. He had the remarkable gift of remembering music he had heard during his early travels in Asia and the Middle East. Many years later, he and Russian composer Thomas De Hartmann created over 200 pieces.
