Termed, ‘a prominent guitarist,’ by the New York Times and praised by The Washington Post for his ‘astonishingly florid’ improvisations, David Rogers presents an evening of solo guitar music with strong leanings towards jazz, world, folk and classical music.
An endorsing artist for GHS Strings, his music has been featured in major guitar magazines such as Fingerstyle Guitar in the United States and Akustic Gitarre, in Germany. His solo and ensemble performances have been broadcast on American National Public Radio and Bayrische Rundfunk.
David will play a program based around Spanish, Flamenco, Up-Tempo Latin, original settings of Leonard Cohen, Rolling Stones’, Roxy Music songs, as well as music by the Beatles, J.S. Bach and original compositions. He will also be premiering an original setting of Tim Buckley’s stunning Song to the Siren.

“A more perfect duo in chamber music sense can hardly be imagined. The two put their sound together so sensitively that the illusion of a single large instrument arises. A pianist or good conductor would not balance the sound differently and better than they did it together on twelve strings.” -Klaus Lipinski
“Sheu’s contribution includes the exploration of the seldom-heard side of the guitar repertoire: female guitarist-composers. She performs with authority, sensitivity, and flair, demonstrating the musicianship necessary in the presentation of this music. Sheu’s elastic phrasing and the warm, lyrical tone she coaxes out of her maple/spruce Byers are the perfect complement to both the music and the style of the musicians who inspired it.”
from review by Giacomo Fiore
In her recitals, Kulikova speaks directly, almost conversationally, with an audience. She excels in differentiating the lines of what she is playing; melodic lines that pass from one string to another, and even cross each other, yet retain consistent tone-color; richly resonant, cello-like thumb strokes, and a singing tone up in the highest positions of an intensity almost too beautiful to bear. She also brings to the repertoire classical works by Russian composers, performing them in a way only a Russian can!
