Award-winning fingerstyle acoustic guitarist Hiroya Tsukamoto will visit Elderly Instruments Saturday evening (June 3) for an intimate performance. The musician was born and raised in Japan and came to the United States in 2000 to attend Berklee College of Music. His style fuses folk, jazz and world music, and he headlines concerts throughout the U.S. and beyond.
“Tsukamoto’s instrumental abilities are indeed breathtaking and astounding, but his performances are so much more than that. He has the unique capability of engaging an audience through a personable and genuine approach that transfixes his audience and almost transcends his capabilities as a guitarist,” Elderly Instruments said on its website. “Tsukamoto plays with an effortless skill on the guitar and a repertoire that will have you traveling the world, not to mention experiencing new sounds with his own compositions.”
“Hiroya has been captivating Lansing audiences for as long as I can remember, and this time he'll be delivering an unforgettable performance in the newly remodeled Elderly Instruments showroom. It's going to be an intimate and incredible experience,” said AJ Glaub, Elderly Instruments’ social media and events coordinator.
“My main guitar, which I plan on bringing to this show, is originally from Elderly Instruments,” Tsukamoto said. “My friend bought it new 22 years ago, and several years ago, he got ill and handed it over to me. I’m happy to bring it back to its original location.”
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on Elderly Instruments’ website, elderly.com.
