The Timucua Arts Foundation are winding down their International Guitar Festival this weekend with two showcases featuring axe-slingers from around the globe.

On Friday, Sept. 2 at 7:30 p.m., Australian guitarist and country musician Cathrine Britt will grace the Timucua stage for a solo set.

Then, on Saturday, Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m., Japanese guitarist Hiroya Tsukamoto makes a rare stateside appearance to close out the fest. Fingerstyle player Tsukamoto is advertised as weaving intricate soundscapes that "impart peace and tranquility." And, wow, we could really use a little of that that after finishing up another Best of Orlando issue.

Tickets are available for each show still through Timucua Arts' website.
