A Brief History of the Coolest Instrument in The World

Do you love the electric guitar?

Hull Truck Theatre welcome this unique live show by Chris Montague to the City as part of the Hull 2017 closing season celebrations.

Tickets are only £4 each for the amazing opportunity to see this renowned show.

A Brief History of The Coolest Instrument in the World, devised by Chris Montague, marks the milestones of the electric guitar through 80 years of popular culture, from Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix.

Through a mixture of performance and speech, this show celebrates the great guitarists through the ages and the versatility of the instrument.

One of the UK’s most innovative guitarists and a founder member of Troyka, Chris Montague is widely recognised for his skills as a composer and performer. He’s joined in this concert by Conor Chaplin (bass), Tim Giles (drums), and Michael L Roberts (vocals/piano).

You can find out more, including details of how you can get involved in the performance if you are an amateur guitarist here
