This Global Guitar Summit features Matthew Montfort and Teja Gerken, two international acoustic guitar virtuosos who will perform solo and ensemble pieces. The music performed will include new arrangements of classical works, Celtic music, Indian classical, contemporary compositions, popular songs, and much more.
Matthew Montfort is the leader of the world fusion ensemble Ancient Future and a pioneer of the scalloped fretboard guitar. He has released two solo CDs: Seven Serenades for Scalloped Fretboard Guitar and Sympathetic Serenade, for which he is recognized as one of the world’s 100 Greatest Acoustic Guitarists by DigitalDreamDoor.com. He has performed at the Festival Internacional de la Guitarra in Spain and the Mumbai Festival at the Gateway of India.
German-born Teja Gerken is a contemporary steel-string fingerstyle guitarist whose playing merges the styles of European guitar pioneers such as John Renbourn with the distinct sounds of American players such as Michael Hedges. Known for his original compositions employing alternate tunings, two-handed tapping, and percussive effects, Teja will also bring Celtic, jazz, and classical styles to the Global Guitar Summit.
