November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
$12 – $18
Singer Songwriter / National Slide Guitar Champion…..
A Kraig Kenning show is a guarantee! The ACMA is delighted to have him back on our stage.
More about Kraig Kenning:
Call him Contemporary folk, Acoustic blues, Roots rock, or American fingerstyle. The fact is, Kraig has managed to merge a bit of all the above, while maintaining a close and personal connection with his audience. Kraig has played up to 200 dates a year touring the US for the last 3 decades, showcasing songs from his eight cds containing almost exclusively original material.
Kenning has shaped himself into one of the most capable performers on the planet. “There is an exchange at a spiritual level in a great performance. My goal is to journey with all my listeners to this magical place.”
Kenning has inspired comparisons with Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Bob Dylan, and Jackson Browne…to name a few. His finger picking often brings reminders of Kraig’s long time hero Leo Kottke. “His overall performance and presentation stand equal with any of today’s top singer/ songwriters”, states Dave Glynn of the Fox Valley Blues Society. It’s hard to be humble when elevated to the ranks of guitar gods and modern poets, but Kraig is quick to point out the logic behind such flattering comparisons: “Those are the guys I listened to, whose music I locked myself in my room with growing up. If I sound like any of them, it’s because they were my inspiration and fueled my dreams.”
At National Guitar’s 1st Annual Slide Competition, Kraig took first place honors as Best Unsigned Artist. He has opened for slide guitar master Sonny Landreth; and he has shared lineups with club and folk series favorites such as John Gorka and Patti Larkin.
