Richard Gilewitz - Fingerstyle Guitar Adventurer - Workshop and Gig

Richard Gilewitz gig and Ukelele workshop at Mercury Bay in May
Richard Gilewitz Workshop and Gig

For nearly four decades, American fingerstyle wizard Richard Gilewitz has fascinated listeners with 6- and 12-string finger gymnastics while spinning the enchanting yarns of a seasoned raconteur.

His concert performances around the world spill over with unexpected turns of the funnies, thought-provoking takes on life on the road, and tunes that propel the audience on a magical journey of sight and sound.

His signature playing style delivers a technical diversity of banjo style patterns and classical arpeggios with a rhythmic percussive approach, exploring the history of guitar with sounds of folk to Americana, the blues to the classical, ragtime to pop, and somewhere in between.

In addition to his concert performances, his guitar and ukulele workshops, and educational programmes for schools inspire players worldwide, providing opportunities for music lovers to work on their craft and young players to learn fingerstyle techniques and tips of the trade.

Well known to many in the Bay, Richard is rapt to be returning for the third time to Mercury Bay. He will deliver a fingerstyle workshop, followed by a performance.
