All proceeds from the concert will directly benefit the Greene County Food Bank.

Although influenced by a wide variety of musical styles and musicians from the country of Chet Atkins to the rock and roll of Duane Eddy and the Beatles, Dykes has developed a distinct, recognizable sound that amazes audiences with skill while capturing hearts with sincerity and soul.
Doyle’s appreciation for various styles of music is reflected in his albums as they include signature compositions like “Jazz in the Box” and “Martha’s Kitchen” and hymns like the powerful “How Great Thou Art.” “Gitarre 2000″ was released by Windham Hill Records, and Dykes’ music has appeared on several of the label’s compilation albums like “Here, There, and Everywhere” (a tribute to the Beatles).
Internationally, Doyle attracts record audiences in many continents around the world. Whether to a guitar player or music enthusiast, Dykes’ music will make a lasting impression on anyone given the opportunity to listen.
