Published 9:00am Thursday, February 28, 2013 Updated 11:21am Thursday, February 28, 2013

“World Artist of the Year” award-winning Mediterranean guitarist Pavlo will be performing at A Center for the Arts, downtown Fergus Falls in the Fergus Theatre at 124 W. Lincoln Ave at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 16.

General seating tickets are $18 for adults and $5 for children/students. For more information or tickets, call AC4TA at 218-998-ARTS (2787) or visit www.FergusArts.org.

Pavlo is a true world artist, and has become famous for bringing every audience to their feet. He tours worldwide performing over 150 shows per year and is still driven by his father’s famous words: “Have the courage to do what you love, and the drive to do it well.”

He incorporates the world’s most exotic instruments into his classic Mediterranean sound. Influenced by his travels, you will be captured by the Chinese Ehru; the Portuguese Guitarra; the Arabic Flute; the Indian Sitar and of course the Greek Bouzouki.

Pavlo has come full circle since he introduced his Mediterranean brand in 1998, and is unmatched in his ability to melodically unite world instruments into his sound seamlessly, all the while staying true to his distinct Mediterranean guitar signature.

His awards include: World Artist of the Year, Touring Artist of the Year, Greek Man of the Year, and others. He has sold a half a million records worldwide and earned two Gold Albums (Fantasia and Pavlo).

Pavlo owns his own line of nylon string acoustic guitars retailing online and across Canada, called “Pavlo, Signature Series,” and is known for giving away his guitar to someone in the audience at every concert.
