Ken Bonfield, guitarist/composer from Gloucester, MA, returns to PFL on Wednesday, December 11 at 6:30pm to present his popular seasonal concert, WinterNight. Bonfield, who has been recovering from tendinitis in both hands, is healthy for the first time in several years and will return with a full complement of guitars and music. But for this concert, he will be performing on custom nylon string guitars instead of steel string. The lower tension of the nylon strings allows Bonfield to play without pain or risk of injury. And it’s given him an entirely new tonal palette to explore on standard nylon string, baritone nylon string, and re-entrant tuned nylon string which might best be thought of as a 6-string ukulele. Ken will perform a mix of Celtic, Classical, Traditional and original music sure to please anyone who loves the sound of solo guitar played by a master.
This free concert is sponsored by AARP and Mid Coast Hospital.
