Greg Ryan is a singer and guitarist, inventor, and master-craftsman. He is co-founder of the modern gypsy jazz group They Might Be Gypsies with his son Aidan. Greg performs in a duo with Rani Arbo, and plays with the Bow Thayer Band as well as the Queen City Hot Club. Greg builds and plays ‘Gourdtars,’ an instrument of his own design, something of a cross between an old-time banjo and a Turkish oud. He performs everything from Gypsy Jazz and Americana to ‘improvisational gourd funk’.
