Join Portfolio Coffeehouse for an intimate evening of acoustic fingerstyle guitar with Taylor Guitar artist Scot Ryder. This is also a release party for Ryder’s latest “Acoustic Christmas” CD. Friday, December 14, 7-9pm. The last few times this artist has played Portfolio it’s been a packed house, so get there early to guarantee a seat!
Scot Ryder is an energetic fingerstyle acoustic guitarist hailing from San Diego whose style can be described as a mix of folk, classical and flamenco, blended with harmonics, tapping, percussive guitar slapping. His playing has often been compared to guitarists such as Preston Reed, Michael Hedges and Stephen Bennett. Ryder’s debut solo recording, Inspiration, was released this past April. Scot is currently featured in Music That Pays magazine as well as in the last edition of Crazy N Sane Music magazine.
Ryder is a member of the AFM (American Federation of Musicians) local 325 and owns San Diego’s largest rehearsal & recording facility, Superior Sound Studios and Room 16 Recording Studio. His guitars of choice include a Taylor 712ce and 514ce for studio recordings, and a Taylor 414ce and 514ce for live performances.
