Bucks County Guitar Summit features Mark Cosgrove, Rolly Brown, and Tim May.

Virtuoso acoustic guitarists Mark Cosgrove and Rolly Brown will be featured in their seventeenth annual "Bucks County Acoustic Guitar Summit" autumn music event, including an 8 p.m. concert on Saturday, Nov. 27, at Buckingham Friends School in Lahaska PA. Both Bucks County performers have won the prestigious National Guitar Championships held annually in Winfield KS; Cosgrove in Flatpicking and Brown in the Fingerstyle division. This year's event will also feature special guest Tim May, a world class guitarist, singer, and songwriter from Nashville.
All three guitarists will also be featured in a Saturday afternoon workshop from 1 till 4 p.m.

Cosgrove continues to be a busy performer, teacher, and session player. The past year has brought solo appearances as well as dates with his band Good Medicine, performances with the DePue Bros Band, Roberto Dalla Vecchia, and fiddle and dance team John Kirk and Trish Miller. He recorded a CD in December with fellow flatpicking master Steve Kaufman and has completed his fourth solo cd which features some of acoustic music's most notable players as well as some rising young stars.
 Mark is known for his hard-driving and versatile guitar styles, showing equal abilities in bluegrass, jazz, rock, and as a tasteful sideman. He continues to teach and perform at guitar camps and workshops around the country and is very much looking forward to this year's concert and workshop with his friend and longtime Guitar Summit concert collaborator Rolly Brown..

Brown, formerly a sideman to various folk luminaries and host of WXPN's "Guitar Wizards", began his musical life as a folk guitarist, and, in his 46 years of playing, has moved through phases of blues, swing, bluegrass, ragtime, and rock on his way to the jazz/blues that is now, along with original compositions, a hallmark of his solo performance. He is a prominent teacher and performer at guitar camps around the country and in Canada, and his instructional and performance videos on Youtube have garnered over 100,000 hits.

This year's special guest, Tim May, is a highly respected Nashville based multi-instrumentalist who has toured a/or recorded with Charlie Daniels, Patty Loveless, John Cowan, and Eddie Rabbit. He also performs regularly with his band, Plaidgrass. Flatpicking Guitar Magazine calls Tim "one of the most versatile acoustic guitar players on the scene today…His innovativeness and his willingness to step out … set him apart from the crowd...Time will prove him to be one of the legends of flatpicking guitar."
