Mathiske: Guitar virtuoso

Bruce Mathiske enthrals his audiences with not just a phenomenal level of technical brilliance but, perhaps even more importantly, with an apparent instinctive ability to absorb and understand, then master and consummately deliver just about any style of music you could think of.

Bruce Mathiske: At home with his guitar.

Bruce Mathiske: At home with his guitar.

Once described as uninhibited by direction, it is now clear that guitar genius Mathiske’s many eclectic and various music influences from his world travels have evolved into a style all his own.

The audience will be taken on a journey with infectious rhythms and fiery fretwork to delicate melodies. His international career has taken him to concerts in Denmark, Japan, Switzerland, the UK, USA and Canada as well as performances at many festivals including the London Guitar Festival and France International Guitar Festival.

He is the chameleon of guitar, a natural performer and you can catch him in concert at The New Ivanhoe Blackheath on Friday, March 22 at 7.30pm. Tickets $20 at the bar or phone 0249 477 443.
