About
ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTAL GUITAR ARTISTRY FOR ANY OCCASION

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

Other Comments:
"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!

"Five Stars! Wedding music done flawlessly!"
~ Dave Magaro on May 31, 2015

"I first met Rick in 2002 when he and his talented musician wife, Lynn Trombetta, offered a concert at our Center. As a performing artist Rick has always been highly sought after with an unparalleled diversity of music. It's been very satisfying to see Rick's talent recognized by so many and watch his range of work grow. Rick has performed for many years in our community always captivating his fans (new and old) with his unfaltering talent. Longevity of this nature in Sedona speaks volumes."
~ Nancy Spheeris
Director at Sedona Creative Life Center

"I have worked with Rick both as a colleague and as a service provider. Rick is a kind, sensible, no non-sense type of guy who knows his industry and conducts himself professionally. His manner, and his music, is a credit to his industry."
~ Lori Reinhart
Executive Director, Sedona Arts Festival

"Rick is an awe inspiring performer. He has performed at many local venues and is a local favorite. People flock to hear him perform solo or with his wife Lynn Trombetta of Meadowlark, the Seymour & Cyge duo or The Rifftors. Due to his versatility and professionalism, he is a first choice for the many events I am a part of producing from my art galleries receptions to our largest venue in Sedona holding up to 750 people."
~ Linda Goldenstein
Founding Partner at Integrative Media Consultants LLC

~ Sam Kathryn Campana
Executive Director at Audubon Arizona

"For more than a dozen years Rick has provided music for our Christmas Eve service at Community Christian Church in Tempe. He also played at our wedding and at other weddings where I have officiated.

Rick was very accommodating and professional. We booked him last minute and he politely accepted, even though it was a tight schedule for him due to another booking the same day. Nevertheless, Rick was on time, ready to roll when guests arrived. We gave him very little instructions about the type of crowd we had and still he managed to feel the vibe and play accordingly.

He is very talented and professional. Plays beautifully! No issues except I requesting singing and he felt it wasn't appropriate so he didn't. Wasn't wrong but I had requested it!
