Adam Tully, a guitarist and composer will perform at noon on Friday, Jan. 17, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 1500 State St., Santa Barbara.

Tully was born in New York and is based in Buenos Aires, where he has a celebrated career. His music has been called “unmistakably tango, but with a cool, percussive vibe.”

Tully debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2002 and has appeared as a soloist with the Port Angeles Symphony. After studying in Buenos Aires with tango guitarist Aníbal Arias, Tully took an active role in tango, playing in New York with Octavio Brunetti, Daniel Binelli, Raul Jaurena, Tito Castro, Pancho Navarro and Pablo Pereyra.

Since 2014 he has been involved in tango education, serving on the faculty of Tango Para Músicos in Buenos Aires and Tango For Musicians at Reed College.

Tully has toured the U.S., Latin America and Europe performing at Merkin Hall, Symphony Space, Kaufman Concert Hall, Carnegie Hall, and the Centro Cultural San Martín, and has appeared on recordings, jingles, and film scores. He holds a master of music from The New School/Mannes, and a bachelor of arts from New York University.
