"Ron truly loves crafting and performing original arrangements of some of the best music, past and present.  He applies the taste acquired from years of  experience, remarkable versatility, and a love of improvisation to every one.  Add the deep resonance of his baritone acoustic guitar played "finger-style"  and his rich baritone voice...   and you have a unique and powerful musician worthy of your attention."   samples

"Ron, You were great, what a talent!"

Michael Roth

"Ron, I wanted to thank you for performing at our event. Folks from their mid 20's to mid 70's all spoke quite favorably about your musical capabilities, arrangements, and uncanny ability to respond to special requests. Your quiver is quite full. I am looking forward to the next time we can bring you by."

Regards, Tom English

    "So, you walk in this bar... and you hear this guy with a sweet voice playing music you want to hear. You go to the bar, get a  drink, sit, listen, and stay a while. Ron Hughes is an acoustic guitar player whose music comes from the heart and soul."

Iris Adams (Beaterville Cafe & Bar)  

"When I was in college I enjoyed live folk music at Cafe Lena-Saratoga, N.Y.                                                                                      I had forgotten how much live guitar fed the spirit.  Thank you... nice performance!! "

    "Ron, I was that Englishman you sang to at The Oregon Garden Resort Hotel... Imagine my delight when I was able to listen to your fabulous guitar playing and your rich dark chocolate voice.  I was blown away by your arrangements of well-known tunes, the variety of styles, and (most of all) by your super high quality guitar work... one of the highlights of our holiday..." Ray Jones

   "Ron, Thank you so very much for performing at Greg & Tovan's wedding!  You make such beautiful music!  Your guitar playing and vocals really made the wedding... it was the perfect personal touch!  Everyone should be so lucky as to have you perform at their event.  I can't wait for my next visit to Oregon; hearing you again will be at the top of my list!" Lori Marshall
