At the debut of the Contemporary Christian Music scene, Rick Foster was in the forefront as a solo classical guitarist playing an entirely sacred repertoire. He was the first to play a full concert of sacred music on the classical guitar. He was also the first to arrange and record an album of sacred music for solo guitar. That album, Hymns for Classic Guitar, was a milestone in guitar recordings, drawing rave reviews and many expressions of appreciation from his listeners.
For over two decades the solo guitar music of Rick Foster has lifted hearts in churches across America. Rick's concerts feature primarily instrumental guitar. He is often joined by daughters Jody and Tobi on vocals, flute, and piano. The music includes spirituals and gospel favorites, sacred classical works, timeless hymns and contemporary Christian music.
Rick's skillfully crafted music has drawn a Dove Award nomination from the Gospel Music Association for Gospel Instrumentalist of the the Year and he has appeared as a guest of the 3 Angels Broadcasting Network. Many readers of Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine have enjoyed his columns regarding various aspects of performing and arranging sacred music for the guitar . . ."
