For those seeking unique artists, music and performance experiences, the Sammons Discovery concert series has proven to be a successful catch. Now in its third year, the series once again features guitar virtuoso Rhett Butler. Although best known for playing two guitars at the same time, Butler’s true gift is his mastery of multiple styles. Currently a third-year medical student dedicated to fighting cancer, he has played alongside artists such as Eric Johnson, Tommy Emmanuel and Joe Satriani, delivering passionate performances that led to his recent induction into the Buddy Magazine Texas Tornado Hall of Fame.

His trademark hammer-on style allows him to play two guitars at once by fingering each of the fret boards, coaxing filigreed harmonies and shimmering melodies without needing to strum. Nevertheless, he consistently amazes his audiences by playing one guitar at a time, too, using five or six different guitars during his concerts.
