The Kittery Art Association Music Series welcomes international acclaimed guitarist & singer-songwriter Hiroya Tsukamoto to the stage Friday evening, October 26th, for an eclectic, immersive, and mesmerizing musical journey!
Hiroya, who just recently won 2nd place at the International Finger Style Guitar Championship, is a one-of-a-kind composer, guitarist and singer-songwriter from Kyoto, Japan. He began playing the five-string banjo when he was 13, and took up the guitar shortly after.
In 2000, Hiroya received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music and came to the United States where he soon formed his own group in Boston “INTEROCEANICO (inter-oceanic),” consisting of unique musicians from different continents including Latin Grammy Colombian singer Marta Gomez. The group subsequently released three acclaimed records, The Other Side of the World, Confluencia, and Where the River Shines. Furthermore, Hiroya released two solo albums Heartland and Places from Japanese record label 333 discs.
Hiroya has been leading concerts internationally, including several appearances at Blue Note in New York City with his group and Japanese National Television (NHK). Most noteworthy, he has performed, recorded and shared the stage with Esperanza Spalding, The Kennedys, Joe Jencks (Brother Sun), Michael League (Snarky Puppy), Brooks Williams, and Jim Kweskin.
