Coming to HBG: Acoustic duo Rodrigo y Gabriela

They once performed for President Barack Obama. Now, they can perform for you.

Mexican acoustic guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are coming to Harrisburg, slated to play at the Forum on Nov. 30 as part of Harrisburg University’s concert series, the university announced today.

The pair melds numerous musical genres into their high-spirited acoustic sound, including flamenco, rock and heavy metal. Their eponymous 2006 album, “Rodrigo y Gabriela” charted at No. 1 and, a few years later, they were invited to the White House.

Their most recent album, “Mettavolution,” which was released in April, combines jazz, metal and Latino roots music.

Over the years, the duo has appeared at many music festivals and on numerous American TV programs, including “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Tonight Show.”

Rodrigo y Gabriela will play on Nov. 30, starting at 8 p.m., at the Forum in Harrisburg. Tickets are $50 to $69 and will be available at 10 a.m. on Sept. 20. For more information, visit the concert series website.
