About Adam Rafferty

A guitar player born and raised in New York City, Adam currently spends most of his time on the road playing concerts and doing workshops. Playing music for people is his #1 passion. Teaching music and life is his #2 passion. As a 6-year-old kid, he started with Woody Mann as his teacher and learned a little fingerpicking blues tabs from Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Blake, and others. Like many guitar players, he went through the phases of rock, classical and then got deep into jazz. He played jazz guitar for many years in New York City, and got to play with some jazz greats along the way like Mike Longo (pianist for Dizzy Gillespie and my mentor), Alvin Queen (Drums for Oscar Peterson & Horace Silver), Dr. Lonnie Smith (B3 organ with George Benson), Buster Williams, Bob Cranshaw, Tal Farlow….among many others. In 2006 he was deeply moved by the fingerstyle guitar music of the one and only Tommy Emmanuel. Since then he has toured as solo act worldwide (Bangkok, USA, Germany, Italy, Austria, Scotland, Bermuda, Singapore, Malaysia, Czech Republic), released several fingerstyle instruction DVDs (teaching Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, and Jazz Guitar), and amassed over 10 million YouTube views.

Parking Information

There is no on-site parking at the Mansion. However, the HPA River Street Parking Garage and HPA Walnut Street Parking Garage (Strawberry Square deck) are easy to find and are very close. Restaurants between these garages and the building make for great places to stop before and/or after the show.

DISCLAIMER: Eventbrite uses the terminology "ticket" inappropriately in the context of these Private Mansion Concerts. As you know, I recommend a donation of $27 per person to support the artists. We are not and do not sell tickets -- even though you may receive a registration confirmation by email that uses the term "Ticket.". We are simply using this website/portal to manage the expected sufficiency of limited seating and communicate details about this private, by-invitation-only music party online. I am not operating a commercial enterprise and other than the expense of rental chairs and bottled water, all donations are paid to the artists involved in the show. This concert is not open to the public.
