One event on April 17, 2019 at 7:00pm

Keith Lykins’ music could best be described as Tommy Emmanuel meets Jon Bonham. Playing the 9-string Drum Guitar as well as 6 string guitar, he is a consummate guitarist, singer and seasoned entertainer. He performs a wide but cohesive mixture of cover and original music. From rock music cover tunes performed in a truly novel way to Arabic, Afro-Cubano, Turkish, World Music, Blues and Acoustic Percussive Guitar, his music shines its way through unexpected gulfs and valleys of emotion.

“Amazing! I thought I was listening to two guitars and a tabla. Imaginative and evocative writing. Stellar technique. A plus stage presentation. Keith Lykins should prove to be a tour de force in the acoustic music arena.” Jason Dudas, Executive Director, TBNK, Covington KY

Lykins fires repeated rounds of emotion from his guitar with percussive two-handed techniques…which percolates and pops in Lykins’ capable hands.” Alan Fark, Minor 7th

His lyrics have an urban-bluesy sound that are framed by the rich sounds of his finger style string picking and the rhythms of his slap guitar…a new sound in percussive folk that includes dense finger style string work with layers of percussion knitted together with his own original lyrics.” Terrilynn Meece, Program Coordinator, Troy Hayner Cultural Center
