Tyler Ramsey Brings Facile Finger Picking to Sun Valley
Tuesday, January 16, 2018


Tyler Ramsey grew up in Asheville, N.C., where he learned the folk music that came out of the hollows of the surrounding Smoky Mountains.

His encounters with country blues musicians traveling through the area further refined his sound as he schooled himself under such fingerstyle guitarists as Leo Kottke and John Fahey and country blues guitarists like Mississippi John Hurt.

The singer/songwriter played with Band of Horses from 2010 to 2017, contributing to their 2010 Grammy-nominated album “Infinite Arms.”

He also recorded his own albums, which included “A Long Dream About Swimming Across the Sea.”

Ramsey will bring his facile finger picking and blues-inflected folk to the Sun Valley Opera House at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18.

And he will offer a private hour-long workshop to 25 guitar students form Community School, Wood River High School and Silver Creek High School.

“After years of trying to get Band of Horses to stop in Sun Valley, we snagged what we think is an even more exciting opportunity—having Tyler Ramsey all to ourselves!” said Kristine Bretall, The Center’s director of performing arts.

Some tickets still remain for the concert, which part of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ 2017-18 Performing Arts Series. Tickets start at $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers. Students 18 and under can get tickets for $12.50 and $25, available at www.sunvalleycenter.org or 208-726-9491.


The Sun Valley Center for the Arts has three concerts remaining in its series. International Guitar Night featuring four innovative acoustic guitar players will be offered Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 5-6, and Socks in the Frying Pan will perform Tuesday, March 6.
