Richard Gilewitz:

Known as a fingerstyle wizard and raconteur, Richard creates lively journeys topped with laughter and sparkles of mood mastery and wonderment with his use of banjo style picking patterns, classical arpeggios, tapping and harmonics, along with his rhythmic and percussive touch.

This tireless performer traveled to Australia three times in 2018, in addition to New Zealand, Tasmania, Germany, and Austria. He continues to challenge himself as a solo player and as a result of this effort has recently released an 11-song recording with Australian Guitar Phenom Michael Fix.
