Celebrated guitarist Bill Frisell was born one year after his instrument of choice, the Fender Telecaster. A leading figure in jazz since he came on the scene 30 years ago, Frisell has long been inspired by the eclectic, instrumental music that he grew up around, often with the solid-body guitar front and center. Frisell celebrates this music from the ’50s and ’60s when he presents his “Guitar in the Space Age” showcase this weekend. He plays with fellow guitar master Greg Leisz on electric and pedal steel guitars and his trio partners, Tony Scherr and Kenny Wollesen, on bass and drums on Sunday, July 6, at City Winery. 1030 Main St., Napa. 8pm. $25—$35. 707.226.7372.
