Denny Breau & Friends
Cajun, folk, country, Delta blues and more featuring dazzling guitar work and carefully crafted songs.
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 — Cajun, folk, Delta blues, country and whatever flies out of his guitar — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,” according to Lucky Clark writing for the Kennebec (Maine) Journal. Appearing tonight with Pat Peppin, Barney Martin and more of Maine’s great pool of musicians. Advance discount tickets $15, available only from the box office at 207-633-5159 (open Wed – Fri from 10-2). Regular tickets $20 on the day of show and online at boothbayoperahouse.com.
