Feb. 8, 2002 (Lexington, Ky.) -- Vietnamese acoustic guitarist Tinh will perform at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11, in the Worsham Theatre in the University of Kentucky Student Center.

Tinh, a recording artist with two albums to his credit, uses his music to relate the emotions, moods and periods of his life during and after the Vietnam War.

Born in a village near Saigon, Tinh eventually moved to the U.S. with his mother and American stepfather. After studying guitar at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, he launched his performing career. He opened on a tour of the late blues guitarist John Fahey and developed a close relationship with Fahey as his musical mentor until his death last year.

Tinh's most recent album, "Acoustic Rain," was released last November by East Wind Records. A sample of his music is available by clicking here.

The show, presented by the Student Activities Board, is free and open to the public.
