“Tim Bertsch is truly an extraordinary guitarist, a professional musician who has mastered and combined many styles with this versatile instrument,” said Norm Johnson, concert series organizer.
“So be prepared for an exciting evening of sights and sounds from an expert guitarist/harp guitarist who can switch between jazz, flamenco, classical, blues and gypsy music. Plus hear the unique sound of the strange harp guitar.”
Bertsch is equally proficient on the electric guitar as on acoustic guitar/harp guitar and also plays bass, mandolin, ukelele and sitar, according to his website at www.timbertsch.com, which also says he is rooted in jazz, fusion, flamenco, rock, classical, blues and gypsy music.
