Come hear this gifted guitarist, singer/songwriter and poet play music and read poetry tonight at RiverRun! Performing on Spanish 6-string and acoustic 12-string guitar, Lester Hirsh’s style ranges from classical, country, and folk, to Brazilian jazz and Flamenco. His repertoire includes original compositions as well as standards performed with intriguing percussive guitar riffs and harmonica.
Hirsh’s guitar style, singing, flair for humor, and ability to work the crowd, moved Cheryl Mansley of RiverHouse Concerts, Shepherdstown, WV, to describe him as a ‘One Man Traveling Party.’
Lester has performed in a variety of ensembles over the past 30 years – folk trio Side Three, Tampa, Florida, folk/pop trio Jerusalem, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, and duo Sweet River, Concord, New Hampshire. During that time Lester also honed his skills as a viable solo artist.
