Craig Einhorn

Craig Einhorn was born (1965) and raised in Yonkers, New York. He was smitten with the guitar by the age of twelve and spent most of his adolescence playing popular music on steel string and electric guitar. Entering college at SUNY Fredonia in 1983 he studied Communications but soon discovered the classical guitar. After earning his Bachelor of Music Performance in 1988, Craig received a full scholarship to the Arizona State University Graduate School of Music. At Arizona State Craig was chosen as a graduate assistant in Modern Dance accompaniment where he accompanied numerous talented dancers including Katherine Dunham, pioneer of modern dance. He completed his Masters in Classical Guitar Performance in 1989. From 1988 to 1996 Craig taught Music Theory, Electronic Music, Music Appreciation, History of Jazz, and History of Rock and Roll at Community Colleges in Phoenix, Arizona. His first CD, “In With the Old, In With the New” released in 1995, was used by Barbara Walters on national television on several programs.

In 1996 Craig moved to Eugene Oregon and was asked to teach Classical Guitar at Lane Community College. In 1999 he met Grammy winner Mason Williams and they collaborated on a CD entitled “Obras”. In 2004 Craig played guitar on a CD for Grammy winner Shandi Sinnamon (Song Writer and performer of the hit song “He’s a Dream” from the movie Flashdance. From 1996 to present Craig performed as soloist, with his trio, or band (Los Gringos Latinos) at numerous festivals and has performed concerts in California, Washington, New York, Tennessee, Hawaii and Florida. He has performed as soloist with various orchestras including the Lane Community College Orchestra, Oregon Mozart Players, The Port Angeles Symphony, the Salem Pops Orchestra and the Oregon State University Orchestra. Craig released a CD of Brazilian and Argentine instrumentals entitled “Choros” in 2005 and a CD of original and popular songs he sings called “”Something Real” in 2007. While living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for most of 2009 to 2012, he recorded his latest CD of songs he sings in Spanish entitled “Con los Porteños” in which he is accompanied by seven talented Buenos Aires musicians.

In 2013 Craig released his first three singles but only as digital downloads. One is a song from the 1920’s entitled, “If You Want the Rainbow (You Must Have the Rain)”. He discovered this song while watching the animated movie, “Sita Sings the Blues” in which the music of Annette Hanshaw, a talented Jazz singer form the 1920’s and 1930’s, is juxtaposed with a Hindu legend. The other two songs are two versions of the same song, “Unicorn” and “Unicornio”, one in English (the original version) and the other in Spanish. Craig wrote this song at age 24 while living in Scottsdale Arizona and often performed it at coffee houses and folk music venues such as "Fiddler's Dream". All three songs were recorded in Buenos Aires with three of the same musicians who play on his “Con los Porteños” CD, José Rios on bass, Leandro Savelon on drums, and Fernando Lerman on flute and sax.
