John Hildreth is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist based in Southwest Virginia performing throughout the New River Valley and beyond. His live shows combine virtuoso, aggressive acoustic deep-tissue and finger-style guitar with folk, rock, pop and 80s cover songs and eclectic originals.

John is classically trained in guitar and composition, and holds a Master of Arts in Music. His style is sometimes called ‘deep-tissue guitar,’ at points combining acoustic, world, jazz, rock, traditional, Americana and classical genres. In addition to the acoustic guitar, you may also see him playing electric guitar, Spanish/classical guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, piano or melodica.

John is also a studied composer of solo, chamber and electro-acoustic music. His compositions and arrangements have been performed in the United States, Canada and Europe.

In addition to solo performances, he also tours and performs with contra dance band Dot Dot Dash as well as The Completely Smashed Irish Band.
