Hiroya Tsukamoto is an innovative guitarist and composer fuses folk,jazz, and world music. Born and raised in Japan, in 2000 he received a scholarship to Berklee College of music and came to the U.S.“In terms of musicianship, Tsukamoto’s guitar work was just ridiculous. Right from the beginning of his first song, it was obvious that the folks in Bernunzio’s were in for a treat. His brand of finger style guitar is so intricate, and so blazingly fast at the same time, I kept imagining how many clones I would need to make of myself to accurately replicate his sound. One song that drove that point home was his set opener, “From Coast to Coast,” a song that had some of the fastest harmonic runs I’ve heard,” wrote Trevor Lewis of the Rochester City News.
Tsukamoto’s instrumental abilities are indeed breathtaking and astounding, but his performances are so much more than that. He has the unique capability of engaging an audience thru a personable and genuine approach that transfixes his audience and almost transcends his capabilities as a guitarist. Audience members will be mesmerized; Tsukamoto plays with an effortless skill on the guitar and a repertoire that will have you traveling the world, not to mention experiencing new sounds with his own compositions.
Tsukamoto headlines concerts throughout the U.S. as well as internationally including Blue Note in NYC and Japanese National Television. Most recently, Hiroya won 2nd place in International Finger Style Guitar Championship in 2018.

Sunday, August 9th, 2015 we lost a kindred soul, gifted songwriter performer and champion of human rights. Our grief is overwhelming…Audrey Auld performed at our very first house concert, and what a night it was! Remembering you with sweet, sassy thoughts, Audrey as I watch it again. I hope you’re making as much noise in that angel band as you made down here with us. Play on girl, play on.
