Bruce Mathiske

After last year’s sellout concert, world acclaimed guitarist and composer Bruce Mathiske is returning to the James Theatre for a special solo concert on Sunday 19 May.
Described as the “Authentic Guitar Virtuoso”, Bruce Mathiske composes, orchestrates, and performs his own pieces. He has developed a style that is distinctively his own. His guitar becomes its own orchestra, and his unique style of playing bass, rhythm and melody simultaneously has led to standing ovations and sell-out concerts all over the world. His live shows are justly renowned, and after last year’s thrilling concert, Bruce couldn’t wait to return to the James.
You won’t want to miss out on a ticket for this event! Tickets are $25 ($20 conc), which includes refreshments. To secure a seat, you can book your tickets beforehand by phoning 4947 7443, online at www.mathiske.com, or you can buy them at the door, if spaces are still available.
Mathiske is the finest all-round guitarist this country has produced”- Tony Hillier, The Australian
