Ted Nicolosi is a virtuoso finger-style guitarist capable of playing such a remarkable number of parts simultaneously that you'll swear he's got three hands. When his dad, Sam Nicolosi, supplies the rhythm, Ted's free to do even more dazzling fretwork. Together they are Shared Genes and whether they are re-creating the sounds of Acoustic Alchemy or playing a Beatles classic like "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," the dexterity on display is nothing short of breathtaking.
Shared Genes performs Tuesday, December 30, at Bistro 135, 135 Commercial Street, East Rochester. 6 p.m. Free. 662-5555; bistro135.net.
