Guitar Virtuoso BRUCE MATHISKE
Friday 27th July at 8pm
Adults $30, Concession $25
Around the world audiences are astounded by the experience of guitar virtuoso Bruce Mathiske. He uses his guitar as if it is its own orchestra, encompassing a huge range of genres from swing to Latin, Jazz to African, Folk to flamenco, gypsy to ambient/landscape simultaneously playing didgeridoo and more. He is a master guitarist, an absolute virtuoso, the best in Australia!" (Bruce Elder) "Notes explode from both hands leaving you to wonder if there is another Mathiske in the wings!" (The Scotsman)
Described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “Awash with Jaw dropping virtuosity!” his many eclectic & various music influences from his world travels have evolved into an exciting style all his own. You will be taken on a journey with infectious rhythms and fiery fretwork from far flung corners of his guitar.
"There isn’t a seat to spare as the crowd pours in, then the virtuosic solo guitarist Bruce Mathiske strides onstage and he not so much oozes charisma but pulses it in the rhythm of his playing. Tall, striking and funny, he immediately provokes an enthusiasm not usually seen. The Australian takes on the role of bass, rhythm and lead on his one acoustic guitar, with unnatural-looking hand contortions and fingers that move faster than a hummingbird on speed. Every guitarist in the place turned green with envy...
"Instinctive and impressive Guitar Work…a guitar sensation. Simultaneously playing bass, rhythm and melody, his fingers span as wide as the Golden Gate Bridge. His harmonics drip like dew spangled fairies and he imitates rock'n'roll bass or a harp, occasionally at the same time. His numbers include a tenderly vicious Eleanor Rigby, an ironically melancholic What a Wonderful World and his original compositions combine major and minor spine tingling effect."
