An Evening with the Solo Guitar of Peter Ciluzzi, Solo Bassist Charles Berthoud opens
Guitarist Peter Ciluzzi transports listeners on a journey through virtuosic, evocative compositions that tell a story without words. His acclaimed solo instrumental work has accumulated millions of views on YouTube and more than 6 million plays on Spotify.
Ciluzzi is a recording artist on Candyrat Records, which represents more than thirty musicians from ten countries and features some of the finest guitar-based music from around the world. With what has been described as a distinctive, timeless sound that is both familiar and unexpected, his music defies easy categorization and reflects a wide range of influences including jazz, classical, rock, bluegrass, and world music. He was a finalist in the 2007 Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition and has performed with guitarists such as Antoine Dufour, Gareth Pearson, and Ewan Dobson. Works released on Candyrat records include his debut album “Music Without Words,” and the 2016 follow-up album “Still Without Words.”
Opening the evening is Charles Berthoud, a British bassist that plays the bass like a piano, accompanying himself with multiple parts. Having co-authored the instructional book “Two-Handed Tapping” before graduating Berklee College of Music with highest honors, he has two self-released albums.
