The New York Guitar Festival kicks off its three-night celebration with a concert honoring Sister Rosetta Tharpe, an early pioneer of gospel rock. Occurring on Mother’s Day, the concert celebrates the Arkansas-born singer’s trailblazing windmill guitar moves, which were picked up by Keith Richards and Pete Townsend. Other festival events occur on May 14 and 15. For more information, visit brookfieldplaceny.com.
