Two Outstanding Solo Guitarists, Composers & Storytellers: Ryan Ayers, Guitarist/Composer from Southern California and Aki Miyoshi, the National Fingerstyle Champion of Japan
Sunday March 29th,  2020,  at 2 pm

Two Outstanding Solo Guitarists, Composers & Storytellers:

Ryan Ayers, Guitarist/Composer from Southern California
Aki Miyoshi, the National Fingerstyle Champion of Japan

Ryan says:

Our show is all about finding the crossroads and intersection of a Japanese and an American approach to composing music for solo guitar. We both have an excellent array of original guitar pieces to share with the audience that we match with a wide range of stories. Our stories help give the audience context to the music, points of humor, and insights into the guitar world. We tend to split our evenings into two solo sets and then finish with some duets. Aki has an amazing stage presence and personality, is delightful in his storytelling, and he is one of Japan's top guitarist with an incredibly level of technical ability and soulful music writing.
Ryan and Aki have done three tours together in Japan. They just did 10 concerts across the country in April, 2019.  Footage from that tour was used to make Ryan's latest - and very cool - music video: Island Moonshine.

And Ryan  who possesses a classical technique which he cleverly puts into his steel-string guitars service - is definitely a gifted and talented musician whose musical world is as poetic as it is personal.

Roland Dyens, Guitarist and Composer

About :

Ryan Ayers is a composer and solo guitarist; and, while his music is classical in nature, an evening in concert with Ryan is anything but traditional. Each of his original pieces feels approachable for a modern audience, and Ryans masterful storytelling rounds out the experience, giving deeper meaning to each song he plays.

Ryan takes you into his world and holds you there; until each piece becomes as personal for the listener as it is for the artist. As a result, a performance by Ryan Ayers ends up feeling more like an intimate conversation, set to a rich, vibrant soundtrack. Whether you are a musical aficionado or a stranger to classical guitar, this peek behind the curtain will give you new appreciation for the craft Ryan has spent years refining.

Ryan Ayers has the rare combination of great technique, depth of musicianship, and a fantastic level of comfort on stage. His rapport with audiences belies his age, and leaves everyone with a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end of the evening.

Martha Masters, Guitarist and President of the Guitar Foundation of America
Beautiful and touching. Ayerss performance of his own works shows an intelligent exploration of colors and rhythms with a thoughtful sense of rich musical juxtaposition.
Ryan was not only gifted musically but he was also so charming and engaging. Just delightful!

Judith, Concert Attendee

Aki Miyoshi

Aki Miyoshi  started guitar when he was 5 years old. Aki was active as a classical guitarist until 2002, in Japan. His recent music is considered to be ambient; his music is known to connect/calm/free the audience. His life is dedicated to music completely. Aki is considered to be one of the leading figures in the finger-style guitar genre.
