Guitarist Craig Chaquico has led an exceptionally diverse career, from his early days as the lead guitarist for the multi-platinum selling Jefferson Starship, to a Grammy-nominated, million-selling solo career including success in the realms of smooth jazz, New Age, and lately blues. He’s now working with one of Oregon’s fine young vocalists, Shaeny Celine Johnson, and will be the headlining performer this Saturday at the three-day Newberry Event Music & Arts Festival, a multiple sclerosis benefit in La Pine. He speaks with Eric Alan.
