Music lovers head to Charles & Myrtle’s Coffeehouse
Interested in “eclectic, immersive, and mesmerizing” music? Then you need to find yourself at Charles and Myrtle’s Coffeehouse on Saturday at 8 p.m. to witness the cinematic guitar poetry of Hiroya Tsukamoto.
An internationally acclaimed guitarist and composer, Tsukamoto received a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in 2000 and officially made the move from Japan to the States. Since he has been performing around the world at well-known places such as Blue Note in New York.
If you look up his music on YouTube you’ll find video after video of him performing his poetic style live. Pick any video and listen up, you won’t be disappointed. A favorite of this author’s is “Gemini Bridge.”
The perfect song to lie back with your headphones in and just melt away. To say the Tsukamoto could make a rainy day bright is barely scratching the surface of his infectious, rhythmic sound.
It’s hard to put a finger on how Tsukamoto would describe himself, but for this writer, I’d categorize him as a smooth storyteller who knows how to lose himself in his art, and draw us all in with him.
Close your eyes, turn up Tsukamoto in your earbuds, and let him lead the way.
Saturday, 8 p.m.
