R.D. King performs live at Brandon Music this Saturday
A genre-defying, fingers-blazing guitarist from Boston, R.D. King’s acoustic guitar performances fuse pop melodies, metal rhythms, folk fingerstyle and hints of jazz harmony. King is touring the New England region following the April 2017 release of his newest album “vs. Self” and stops at Brandon Music this Saturday, Sept. 2 for a 7:30 p.m. performance. King’s audiences describe his music as passionate, powerful, deeply memorable and — at times — extraordinary.
Using only instrumental music, King creates compelling narratives and emotional experiences. Through composing and performing, he explores life, consciousness, and meaning, grappling with questions of individual and shared experience. Listening to King’s music is an emotional and introspective journey that is difficult to parse into genre or tradition.
King draws inspiration from literature, philosophy, psychology and meditation. Born into a family of writers, artists and musicians, King has always turned to creative process as the framework for introspection and growth. Trained in classical guitar performance at the Ithaca College of Music, King is a full-time performing musician and has performed at The Spire Center, Club Passim, The Burren, and other quintessential venues across New England. He was the First Place Winner of the 2017 Canadian Guitar Festival Fingerstyle Guitar Competition. He has performed nationwide, opening for renowned artists Andy McKee and Liz Longley, among others.
Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for an extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295, e-mail [email protected] or visit brandon-music.net for more info.
