Seymour & Cyge
Life IS like a box of chocolates! Celebrate Valentine's Day with this very special concert featuring three Sedona favorites. Fingerstyle guitarist, Rick Cyge, Meadowlark with flutist Lynn Trombetta, and the synergetic duo of Seymour & Cyge will all perform.
Tickets are on sale now for the 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15 concert at Relics Restaurant at Rainbow's end.
The evening promises a romantic look at the world through the eyes and hearts of these unique musicians. The night begins with Rick Cyge's romantic fingerstyle guitar.
Then, enjoy an inspiring instrumental voyage to the corners of the earth with Meadowlark.
Wrap up the evening with a nostalgic journey back to the 50s, 60s & 70s with Seymour & Cyge's Baby Boomer Classics. With guitarist Cyge in common, these exceptional groups share an enchanting quality that draws the listener in and brings to mind special places remembered and youthful times.
As Meadowlark, the magical mixture of Cyge's "harp-like" fingerstyle guitar and Trombetta's flutes and effervescent pennywhistles creates an uplifting, instrumental voyage inspired by the beauty of natural places.
How do you turn a soaring bird into music? How do you make a melody swell and ebb and flow like waves? Listen to the intriguing duo, Meadowlark and discover why being in tune with nature is no cliché for these two thought-provoking instrumentalists.
Riding between worlds, these seasoned story-weavers draw listeners in to experience the places and times that served as inspiration for their unique compositions: A hovering hawk takes flight through string-tapping on Cyge's prized Lowden guitar; ocean surf resonates in the warm and mellow tones of Trombetta's flute.
Along the way, Meadowlark seems to change character in "chameleon-like" fashion from song to song, melding influences as diverse as Celtic, African, and Mediterranean in their original compositions.
Trombetta's musical career was nourished in the magnificent canyons of Sedona, where she spent her childhood summers, playing her flute from high and allowing the sounds to waft down through Oak Creek. Artist, writer and musician, her creativity runs high.
Guitarist Rick Cyge's folk roots run deep and his guitar work wraps around the music like a warm comforter. His New England folk beginnings as a singer/composer/guitarist were enhanced by his being founder of Wood & Strings Music Center, a hub of concerts, music instruction and fine instruments in the Boston scene. Cyge brings the folk experience into his duo with local favorite, Chris Seymour.
With a repertoire that stretches from Baby Boomer classics, to folk, country, pop, blues, and even Celtic, the common thread running through all of Seymour & Cyge's music is the chemistry the pair create with the combination of their voices, guitars, and Cyge's mandolin thrown in for spice. The playful banter between them keeps audiences entertained and the music is always engaging.
Reminiscent of dynamic pairings such as Simon & Garfunkel, The Everly Brothers, Seals & Crofts, Loggins & Messina and Chad & Jeremy, Seymour & Cyge create a signature sound that is instantly recognizable.
As each artist brings a depth of experience and distinctive style to the mix, Seymour and Cyge combine their unique individual talents, contrasting and complimenting one another.
Expect Trombetta to add a little pennywhistle magic here and there during their performance. Sit back, nestle into each other for the evening and you'll find yourself singing along to favorite and nostalgic songs from days gone by!
