Cold River Mini Concert Series – Denny Breau Trio – Oct 19th

Denny BreauJACKSON NH – Denny Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He first draws in an audience with a finely arranged melody and then slides effortlessly into scorching fingerwork that sets ears aflame. The lighting fast guitar lines that seem almost humanly impossible to accomplish are balanced with those that have a quiet intimacy and wrap tenderly around his carefully crafted songs. He mixes genres with ease — folk, Delta blues, country and jazz — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,” according to Lucky Clark writing for the Kennebec (Maine) Journal.

With Host Jonathan Sarty

Where: Wildcat Tavern in Jackson, NH @ 7:30pm

Details: $10 general admission – Call for ticket reservations. 603-383-5602.
