“His music is filled with the human spirit” (CFMU Radio) and has been compared to that of Neil Young (Roots Time, Germany), offering “refreshing insight into human complexities” (Festival of Friends) with a style grounded in “the folk tradition with sincerity and integrity” (Folk Roots, UK).
Combining an adept finger style acoustic guitar technique with “strong, distinctive vocals” (Rock n’ Reel, Dublin) and songwriting, which is at once powerful and infused with delicate beauty, Ken delivers his message directly to the soul of the listener.
Over the past 30 years, he has performed at hundreds of venues, from concert halls to festivals and cafes, sharing the stage with folk and roots icons as diverse as Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie P. Bennett, Mike Beck, and Garnet Rogers. From Harry Chapin Food Bank and Amnesty International benefit concerts, to open stages, coffee houses, and street corners, Ken continues to spread his musical message of hope and is pleased to be performing for the first time in San Miguel de Allende.
Joining Ken in this benefit concert for La Biblioteca Scholarships will be partner Anna Green. Anna’s beautiful vocal harmonies, guitar, and keyboard work add a depth and character to this duo’s live performances, which are guaranteed to lift the hearts and inspire fans of grassroots acoustic music.
Please join us at 7pm on Thursday, February 11, for this very special Teatro Santa Ana concert at La Biblioteca, Reloj 50A, Centro.
Admission is 200 pesos and all proceeds fund Biblioteca Scholarships. Tickets are available at the Teatro box office, by calling 415 152 0293 extension 116, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Ken and Anna’s music, please visit www.kendunnmusic.com.
