This concert will feature original compositions by Berto Boyd, a modern day master who weaves the syncopations of Spanish rhythms with the lush harmonies of the Americas. Joining Berto will be Ashland-based guitarist Grant Ruiz. Together they form the Flamenco guitar duo Buenaventura.
Robert "Berto" Boyd began his musical training on the piano at age 5 and has been playing guitar for over 25 years. A rigorous musician and careful researcher, Berto has studied and performed in Spain and the United States, with some of the world's finest Flamenco and Jazz artists.
Born into a family of artists, which includes famed lead singer Brandon Boyd of the multi-platinum band Incubus, he is one of the rare and few Americans who has dedicated his musical dreams to mastering the art of Flamenco and the Spanish Classical guitar.
Berto has recently from moved from Santa Barbara to Corvallis, Oregon with the intent to concentrate fully on concert performances, composition, and the international instruction series - FlamencoGuitarClass.com along with Jose Luis Rodriguez. Berto now divides his time between transcribing, composing, recording, mentoring, gardening, skateboarding, and spending time with his new family.
Berto Boyd is recognized as one of the top professionals in the music and private event industry. In the span of 15 years he and his company have performed and produced concerts and events throughout the United States for many well-known clients.
