Ned Evett, May 28, Sapphire Room

Master of the one-of-a-kind glass-necked, fretless guitar.


Longtime pillar of the Boise music scene Ned Evett is legit famous for his one-of-a-kind glass-necked, fretless guitar. He's been featured in every guitar magazine worth noting, toured and performed alongside some of the greatest musicians of the age and, in 2003, won the North American Rock Guitar Competition. Evett was also the subject of a 2004 PBS documentary, Driven to Play, that aired throughout the United States and Canada.

Now the Nashville-born, Boise High graduate is bringing his world-class blend of Americana and Modern Rock to the Sapphire Room in Boise for a show of musical dexterity and talent that should be required listening for devotees of the local scene.

A similar show last year at the Sapphire Room sold out, so time is of the essence. Get tickets at ($18 general admission, $25 preferred seating) or try your luck at the door, where unsold seats will go for $23 general, $30 preferred. You'll need that luck, too, advance sales will close four hours before the show and door sales will end an hour before Evett takes the stage.
