Billy McLaughlin Film and Performance 

Nightlife Highlights

Billy McLaughlin Film and Performance
May 11. Fingerstyle guitarist Billy McLaughlin’s story moves from artistic heights to heartbreaking depths, before rising once again to soaring platitudes of inspiration. Not long after stunning the acoustic guitar world with his hit 1995 album Fingerdance, the virtuoso was diagnosed with focal dystonia, a neuromuscular disorder that looked to put an end to his playing. Struggling but unwilling to give up, McLaughlin, a natural right-hander, relearned to play using a left-handed technique and hasn’t looked back since. This program at the Rosendale Theater screens the documentary Changing Keys, which chronicles McLaughlin’s triumphant tale, and is followed by a performance from the guitarist himself. 8pm. $18, $20. Rosendale. (845) 658-8989; Rosendaletheatre.org
