Featured artist Andrew Ohren has become a well-known favorite in Plumas County. “His technical capacity is striking,” said Quincy Words & Music coordinator Linda McDermott.
There is no limit to the beauty and diversity of solo guitar music when you listen to the music of solo guitarist Andrew Ohren. Using a nylon-string flamenco guitar Ohren is a master of replicating boundless styles of music with the instrument.
Ohren is also an accomplished classical guitarist and classical guitar composer. He has been performing since he was 18: across the U.S. and all the way to Paris France.
“The audience goes silent when he begins to play and watches in rapt attention. In recent years, he has expanded his repertoire to include popular songs and he has started singing. Andrew always delights. Everyone should come listen to him.”
Ohren first studied guitar with Douglas Murphy at Holy Names College in Oakland. He has also studied with Jim Burtrum at Cal State Hayward, Don Enríquez at Humboldt State, Ed Corey at University of Nevada-Reno, and Benoit Maural in Paris and has been taking master classes with great guitarist such as Michael Chapdelaine and Ana Vidovic.
Ohren has released his fourth full-length recording. He also accepts guitar students at all levels. For more information check out his website at andrewohren.com

All music performances must be acoustic only, with no electrical instruments or sound equipment allowed. Original work is encouraged.
