Ellnora: The Guitar Festival officially opens Thursday night at the Krannert Center in Urbana, with guitarists of all genres. On the Thursday edition of “Live and Local,” we’ll hear three of those players live in our studio: classical guitarist Jason Vieaux; Andreas Aase, who specializes in traditional music of his native Norway; and South African Derek Gripper, whose latest recording translates traditional music of Mali to the Western guitar.
