Ara Music Arts 6pm Series (The Cavell Leitch NZ International Jazz and Blues Festival

For nearly four decades, American fingerstyle wizard Richard Gilewitz has fascinated listeners with 6 and 12-string finger gymnastics while spinning enchanting yarns of a seasoned raconteur. His signature playing style delivers a technical diversity of banjo style patterns and classical arpeggios with a rhythmic percussive approach, exploring the history of guitar from sounds of folk to Americana, the blues to the classical, ragtime to pop, and somewhere in between.

$12/ Booking fees apply. Door sales available, if not sold out prior. Cash only.
