Rick did a wonderful job performing at our wedding. Extremely talented and very accommondating...I highly recommend him!
Rick Cyge's solo finger-style guitar performance features seamlessly layered, full-bodied arrangements of an exciting repertoire of music from greats like The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Sting, Norah Jones, Billy Joel, Acoustic Alchemy, Eagles, Ottmar Liebert and along with Boomer Classics and pop favorites performed on classical guitar.
An interviewer wrote: "One of the best musicians in Sedona, Arizona, Cyge's style is reminiscent at times of Tommy Emmanuel, Laurence Juber and even Chet Atkins. However, the renowned larger-than-life sound of his true 'Guitar Artistry' is stunningly unique and simply must be experienced!" - Call of Sedona, AZ
"Rick Cyge is a hell of a guitar player! His guitar arrangements are pure ear candy – tasty, interesting and accessible." - Ed Hannifin, MA.
"Rick is a fine guitarist. His playing is strong, clean and sweet."- Eric Schoenberg, Schoenberg Guitars
The vibrant New England folk music scene of the 1970's and 80's launched Cyge's career. He later relocated to Arizona where he now performs concerts and special events both solo and in the duo, 'Meadowlark' with flutist, Lynn Trombetta. Memorable, highly professional and easy to work with, Cyge is also available in duos with acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin, and vocals. Visit RickCyge to learn more!
