Acoustic instrumentation has found a safe haven in musician Andy Hackbarth’s hands.

The Colorado native and his band will perform at 7 p.m. Friday, April 26, at the KAFM Radio Room, 1310 Ute Ave.

Performing a potpourri of diverse music, Hackbarth joins a choice few indie artists who “preserve the folk ethic of acoustic instrumentation,” according to http://www.AndyHackbarth.com.

“He also manages to create a cohesive album while weaving together seemingly disparate musical traditions such as 19th century Spanish Romanticism, jazz standards, the classical masters and contemporary indie rock,” the website said.

Hackbarth’s fourth album, “Treadmill Horses,” with “lyrics as poetic as the arrangements are precise and beautiful,” is set for a May 14 release.

Hackbarth was recognized as a classical guitar virtuoso in his early 20s, and he studied at the Aspen Music Festival and School.

“Andy grew up hiking the back country alongside his family’s llamas. (They carried his guitars),” the website said. “Early on, he played songs by Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot around the campfire but quickly made room for the works of Tarrega, Granados or whatever classical composers he happened to be studying at school.”

He moved to Nashville, Tenn., in 2006 to focus on songwriting, striving for the moment when “his songwriting was on par with his mastery of the guitar,” the website said.

Tickets to the Radio Room show are $15. Call 241-8801, ext. 223, for tickets and information.
