Acclaimed international guitarist, singer and storyteller, Hiroya Tsukamoto will perform at the York Street Meeting House, 153 York Street, Lyndon at 7 pm on Friday, March 13. Tsukamoto will fuses folk, jazz, and world music with a blazingly-fast “fingerstyle” technique. Born and raised in Japan, he came to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music. “There were times it sounded as if there were two or three guitars playing simultaneously” wrote Trevor Lewis of the Rochester City News.
Tsukamoto has headlined concerts throughout the U.S. as well as internationally including appearances at New York City’s Blue Note and on Japanese National Television. In 2018, Hiroya won 2nd place in the International Finger Style Guitar Championship in Winfield, Kansas.
Admission: $15 adult; $10 student; under 13 free
