Kevin R. Gallagher ( began playing rock guitar in
his formative years but his musical appetite quickly led him to study jazz
and ultimately, classical guitar. His talent for the classical guitar won
him numerous scholarships and awards while studying with Benjamin Verdery at
the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and at the Julliard School under the
tutelage of Sharon Isbin. He was the first-prize winner in the 1993 Guitar
Foundation of America, the 1994 ASTA, and the 1993 Artists International
Competitions. He also has the distinct honor of being the only American
classical guitarist ever to win first prize in the prestigious Francisco
Tárrega Guitar Competition in Spain (1997). After his studies at Julliard,
Mr. Gallagher gave many classical guitar performances and masterclasses
throughout the world, including countries such as Spain, Germany, Sweden,
Greece, Turkey, Brazil, England, and the United States. He also recorded
four classical guitar albums, the ultimate being an album for Naxos Records
which was hailed as one of the very best NAXOS classical guitar recordings
by Classical Guitar Magazine in May of 2000.

In the summer of 2001, Kevin returned to his first love, the electric
guitar. Since then, his goal has been to bridge the "contemporary" music
concert and the "popular" music concert. Kevin encourages composers to write
new music for the instruments of today - such as the electric guitar,
turntables, synthesizers etc. This unique mix is widening the audience and
interest for new music as well as educating composers who have not had the
chance to study these modern instruments in a typical conservatory
education. Mr. Gallagher has already arranged numerous works for the solo
electric guitar, including pieces by Jacob Ter Veldhuis, Steve Reich, Leo
Brouwer, and Arvo Pärt among others. He also performs chamber music, which
involves the electric guitar in traditional and untraditional settings. For
