Guitarist McLaughlin to play at Arts Center

Acoustic guitarist Billy McLaughlin and friends will perform at the Lakeville Area Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

McLaughlin, a five-time Minnesota Music Award winner, is known for his complex and rhythmic music. After a diagnosis of focal dystonia in 2005, McLaughlin "relearned" how to play lefthanded using techniques that create a harplike effect.

Tickets are $25 in advance ($29 at the door) and are at <URL destination="">www.lakevilleareaartscenter. <PARAGRAPH style="$ID/[No paragraph style]">
