Respected and admired by peers and fans for his playing finesse and prowess, Cyge’s compositions and arrangements show off his intricate approach to enticing what often sounds like multiple instruments out of his guitar. “For this special concert, I invite you to enjoy the ‘Fab Four’ performed on one guitar!” Cyge said.

With a Beatles repertoire of over sixty of their songs, he comments, “The hardest part of putting this concert set together is deciding which gems to include! Re-experience The Beatles’ vast and varied music from the early hit, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, to their later gems including ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’!”
