The beautiful harmonies, inventive yet subtle percussion, strong guitar, and Pierce’s rich vocals are a constant throughout his body of work.

Hiroya Tsukamoto will be returning to the Tanner Theatre on July 21, 2017 at 8 pm for his second MACmusic performance.

Hiroya Tsukamoto is an internationally-acclaimed guitarist, songwriter, and composer from Kyoto, Japan. After receiving a scholarship to study in the US in 2000, he began performing internationally. He has released six albums.

“Guitar poetry” is how Hiroya describes his music, and it is nothing short of accurate. His romantic songs tell a traveler’s story in a way that is cinematic and soulful. As he explains: “By playing music, I could travel to different places and times.” Growing up, Hiroya listened to many varieties of music, an influence that, along with his Japanese folk music roots, shaped his sound.

Hiroya has received many accolades, and the Boston Herald says he "takes us to an impressionistic journey." MAC invites you to come enjoy this unique experience that will take the audience across genres and cultures.

Tickets are now available for this one-night event. Admission is $10. Tickets may be purchased at the MAC Lobby Desk, by phone (304-292-3325), and online at www.monartscenter.com/shop.
