Harrison House Music & Arts will present artist-in-residence Gyan Riley in a solo guitar performance on Wednesday, April 24 at 7:00 pm.
New York-based guitarist and composer Gyan Riley seamlessly weaves together the virtuosity of Western classicism, North Indian raga, American fingerpicking, and Spanish flamenco guitar with the deftness of jazz and the grit of rock-and-roll. The evening’s program will feature new original repertoire and improvisation.
Originally from the Bay Area, Riley was the first ever full-scholarship graduate guitar student at the San Francisco Conservatory. He has performed throughout Europe, Canada, Latin America and the U.S. both as a solo artist and in various ensembles including performances with Zakir Hussain, the San Francisco Symphony, the World Guitar Ensemble and his father, composer/pianist/vocalist Terry Riley. Gyan’s diverse work now focuses on his own compositions and recent performance highlights include Carnegie Hall, Barbican Theatre, Moogfest and soloing with the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra.
Harrison House Music & Arts is an artist residency, performance and community arts program based in the straw bale retreat built by the late composer, Lou Harrison on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park. HHM&A invites gifted artists into this historic and remarkable acoustic environment to share their art with audiences in an intimate setting.
