Greg Herriges
Event Description:
Greg Herriges returns to the HAC stage to kickoff the 2021-2022 concert season at HAC!  
Greg plays an eclectic mix of original and traditional world (“whirled”) music on guitar, voice, and bouzouki (Greek lute), with a dazzling approach honed by his studies of Asian and other international styles. A virtuoso performer and award-winning composer, his music and writing have found international acclaim. Greg was selected to receive the 2009-10 Bush Artist Fellowship for Music Composition, which speaks volumes for his artistry and dedication to his music.

With a background in progressive rock and fingerstyle guitar, Greg studied ethnomusicology (traditional World music), working with masters of Indian classical music, Chinese pipa, and Indonesian gamelan. Mixing those influences with his own acoustic sensibilities, he puts new spins on everything from Turkish folk and Bollywood film music to Japanese koto tunes and surf-rock. His full group includes tabla and world percussion — but he is equally at home “letting one guitar play him.”
