Born in Atlanta and named after the dashing character in "Gone With The Wind," this Rhett Butler is an internationally renowned guitarist who defies classification. The Sammons Center proudly presents him in concert on Thursday, March 30, 8:00 p.m., as part of the new concert series featuring unique music artists and styles.
Despite his mastery of multiple genres and passionate performances, Rhett is most well-known for playing two guitars at once. But he's no gimmick performer. He has performed with legends like Al DiMeola, Eric Johnson, and Joe Satriani, earning the right to be part of the next generation of Texas guitar heroes.
Rhett, who has been called an obsessive-compulsive guitarist, is also an author, cancer patient advocate, documentary filmmaker, philanthropist, and soon-to-be medical student. His book, "The Patient and Caregiver's Guide to Cancer," is an Amazon best-seller and "Chasing Miracles," his film about the life of his younger brother who died of cancer, was selected for the 2011 Dallas International Film Festival.
Tickets cost $45 per person and include valet parking, light appetizers, and beverages such as beer, wine and soft drinks. Sammons members receive a $5 per ticket discount. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; the concert begins at 8:00 p.m. For tickets, call the Sammons Center at (214) 520-7788 or buy online at http://bit.ly/ SammonsCtrCart.
