"Eric Henderson is one of the finest classical guitarists performing today. He started his career as a teenager, and it has been my privilege to watch Eric and his music continue to grow. Over the past weeks, several students and faculty have mentioned that they hope he returns soon. I think that's a wonderful idea." Read more.

"Eric is a master musician with impeccable credentials, but he is also a dedicated teacher who cares about the legacy he will leave; he is bequeathing to future musicians the same gifts he received from the great teachers he has worked with. I am grateful that he shared his talents with us and know that he will continue to give generously of his time and effort in order to continue to enrich and enliven the tradition he so beautifully sustains."

Orange County, CA
"...It brought the house down. I have not seen this energy in a classical guitar concert in many years.
Technique and interpretation are without question. Henderson combines these two in an extremely aggressive manner to maximize the guitar and his performance.
He is multi-generational. We need Eric Henderson to help carry the guitar from its glorious past to the promising future." Read more.
San Luis Obispo Folk Music Society
"SLOfolks is fortunate to have booked many excellent guitarists but Eric Henderson is in a class by himself. His expertise is evident in the way he performs with ease and clarity.
Whether playing a traditional spanish piece, a tune by the Rolling Stones' or one of his original compositions, Eric excels,
Eric performed two sold out shows for our audience and their enthusiasm was evident in their response. We certainly will invite Eric back."
Carl St. Clair
Music Director - Orange County's Pacific Symphony
"His music was something uniquely wonderful. Performing on a guitar personally given to him by Andres Segovia, Eric was creating virtuosic soundscapes - all with ease, excitement, total command and complete bliss. I was in the presence of a great musician, Eric Henderson." Read more.
