Melbourne guitarist Harts will perform the music of Jimi Hendrix at the Melbourne Recital Centre in May.
I’m very excited to be putting on this special show,” Harts said in a statement. “Jimi’s music and playing has always been a big inspiration and influence on my own style as an artist and guitarist. It’s going to be a thrill paying tribute to the iconic music legend by performing and really showcasing his work in a show like this. I think Hendrix fans, Harts fans, lovers of classic rock and the guitar are really going to enjoy this show.”
The Harts project has been met with approval from the Hendrix estate. “Harts is the real deal. He has the tools to lead a new generation that our world has never seen,” said Jimmy’s nephew Austin Hendrix.
Early in his career, Darren Harts grabbed the attention of Prince who took him under his wing and made him his protégé.
