One of the strangest men in acoustic music today is Richard Gilewitz. He fascinates his audiences with finger style gymnastics on his 6 and 12-string guitars while spinning tales too unbelievable not to be true.

He began honing his skills during the late 1970’s at the University of Alabama while pursing a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics. Gilewitz eventually worked in the field of flight simulation design, telemetry and satellite systems. Soon, his passion for music took over and Richard left corporate life to teach and perform full time.

His workshop: Fingerpicking Guitar is only $250.00 and takes place at the Florida House Inn this weekend, August 7th, 8th and 9th. Visit either of the Web sites for more information.
