Evan Twitty is a young fingerstyle guitarist whose many accolades belie his young age. He won the 2017 Traditional category at the Merle Travis Thumbpicking Weekend competition in Mountain View, Arkansas, which he had also won in 2016. At the 2015 International Home of the Legends Thumbpicking Weekend in Kentucky, Evan was honored with the Horizon Award, which was an induction into the International Thumbpickers Hall of Fame. He most recently won the second place prize at the 2019 Indiana Fingerstyle Competitions. Evan cautions his fans not to be fooled by all the traditional elements in his repertoire, however. He plays many different styles from blues to country, contemporary, and jazz to rockabilly. He has appeared on the Wood-Songs Old Time Radio Hour as guest of Tommy Emmanuel and has performed multiple times at the annual Jerry Reed Tribute Concert in Nashville, Tennessee. Evan has been a featured performer many times at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society (CAAS) Music Convention, also held in Nashville. Unlike many fingerstyle guitarists, Evan loves singing the country classics, too, and his performances are truly crowd-pleasers.
Evan Twitty will be appearing in a solo concert at Waynesville Music, 198 S. Main St., Waynesville, Ohio on February 22 at 7 PM. Please remember that this is a small venue in a guitar store, advance tickets are recommended (see the red ticket link above).
