The name Hucky Eichelmann requires little introduction for Asian audiences, his unique and dazzling guitar style has long been delighting his loyal and ever-increasing audience in the region.
The international press has dubbed him as "Musical Ambassador between East and West" and a Bangkok Magazine labeled him the "Musical Ambassador for His Majesty the King of Thailand". An official tribute from the palace described him in glowing terms as an "indefatiguable champion of H.M. the Kings music" after he recorded and published CANDLELIGHT BLUES. He had the great honor to be invited to stage several Royal Command Performances for His Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej and for Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand.
Though holding a master degree in classical music, Hucky started very early to develope his own repertoire of great diversity bridging the Cultures of East and West as well as the Classical with the Folkloristic and the Serious with the Popular. A cross-cultural highlight was his work with Pandit Ravi Shankar who, in collaboration with Hucky, re-composed his popular Sitar Concerto No.1 for guitar & orchestra.
Other great artists Hucky had the honour to collaborate with include Richard Harvey, George Winston, Nina Corti and Carlos Bonell.
He also played alongside such guitar greats as John Williams, Paco Peņa, David Russell, Jorge Morel, the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet und Juan Martin. He thrilled audiences during the world's most prestigious guitar festivals in Great Britain, Singapore and Australia. He was privileged to be invited to perform at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City - a rare honour for an instrumentalist.
