The Mahwah Museum, as part of its Les Paul Legacy Series, will present a virtual jazz/blues guitar workshop with guitar virtuoso King Solomon Hicks on Thursday, April 1, from 7:30-9:30 p.m. via Zoom.
King Solomon Hicks grew up in Harlem “around a lot of great musicians.” He has performed in venues such as the Iridium, the Red Rooster, Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar, Terra Blues and more.
