Greg Herriges stirs a mix of original and traditional progressive world music on guitar, voice, and Greek bouzouki, with a unique approach honed by his studies of Asian, Mediterranean, and other worldly styles. An award-winning composer and performer, his music and writing have found international recognition. His solo & duo sets include lively instrumentals, inventive versions of rock and jazz standards, and mesmerizing world music.

With a background in progressive rock and fingerstyle guitar, Greg studied ethnomusicology, focusing on Indian and East Asian classical traditions. He went on to write instructional music books and multimedia for Hal Leonard Publishing, specializing in world music for guitar. Also a composer of theater and soundtrack music, his lifeblood is performing; he is equally at home playing with cross-cultural ensembles or letting one guitar play him.

... a gifted musician who is able to bring the best sounds from several cultures into one type of intriguing music. --Folkworld (Germany)

Guitar renegade... Herriges always comes off as native maestro, never slumming dilettante. His technique on both guitar and bouzouki is formidable, his feel for diverse cultures exemplary.
