Musician

Gary Meyers

Flamenco guitarist, composer, and performer Gary Meyers didn’t grow up immersed in the exotic rhythms of Andalusia, but he intuitively taps into the Spanish spirit to perform this storied traditional music with reverence and dazzling virtuosity. The Castle Rock, Colorado-based artist’s story is how a lifelong musician who played Van Halen- style electric guitar heard a friend play flamenco, and then experienced a revelation that sent him on a transformative artistic adventure. “Flamenco is the sister music of Northern America’s blues—both come from oppressed people. The passion of flamenco is like that of the original blues artists, and, when I first heard it, it touched my soul, There’s a lot of struggle and pain in this music, and that melds us together,” Meyers says
