Nature Coast Friends of Blues invites everyone to February 2020’s music series Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Museum Café, 10466 Yulee Drive, Homosassa.

Masterful folk and jazz guitarist Rod Sillars opens for Tom Kay from 1-2 p.m. Most musicians from Brooksville’s “The Farm” have dubbed Sillars “The Guru,” because he knows and uses all the chords. He is proficient in folk, jazz, blues, Latin, contemporary, classical, light rock and all the old standards.

Sillars started out playing clarinet and sax, but then switched to guitar in his mid-twenties.

From 2-4 p.m. Tom Kay will take the stage. Kay’s music roots and love for the guitar took hold at an early age. Sixth grade introduced him to synthesized music, which laid the foundation for future

artistic qualities.

As a guitar player, Kay has always strived to enhance the tone and voice of his guitar and has mastered the combination of both guitar and synthesizer, infused into the genres of smooth jazz and the blues.

For over 20 years, he has enjoyed playing throughout the northeastern Florida region, recently migrating to Yankeetown, where he is opening new avenues for performance.

Admission is $7 for Nature Coast Friends of Blues members and $10 for nonmembers. Join NCFB on the day of the event and get in for free. Memberships are $20 (family) and $15 (individual).

The café will be open for food and beverages during the show. To order food in advance, and for directions, call 352-628-1081.

Bring chairs, but no pets, coolers, food or drinks.
