Guitarist extraordinaire, Ayushi Karnik will be performing live in Bangalore.
Had a bad week? Feeling the blues? Well, if that’s the case, then we’ve got some good news for you. Surat-based blues guitarist Ayushi Karnik will be performing live in Bangalore on the 9th of June at Bflat. Ayushi first got attention in 2012 as the frontwoman of ‘Red Blues’, a blues band from Surat. After she uploaded a few videos of herself playing the guitar on YouTube, word quickly spread of this young, talented musician. At the time, Ayushi was only 17, but already playing with the maturity of a far more experienced player. It wasn’t long until Ehsaan Noorani (of the Bollywood music trio, ‘Shankar/Ehsaan/Loy) came across her and Ayushi was soon picked up by guitar company, Fender as an endorsee.
As word continued to spread about her guitar playing. Ayushi took some time off to attend the Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music to continue working on her chops. Ayushi Karnik is known around the country as one of the finest, young blues guitarists and it’s easy to see why.
She will be performing this Friday as part of the Ayushi Karnik ensemble alongside some super-talented musician. Opening for the Ayushi Karnik ensemble will be the Sylvester trio, led by one of Bangalore’s finest blues musicians, Sylvester Pradeep as well as Delhi-based singer-songwriter Siddhant Shukla.
The gig is set to take place at Bflat on the 9th of July and promises to be an incredible night, especially if you’re a blues fan. Get all the details you need here.
