The South Bristol Cultural Center's Music at the Barn Series begins June 8 with Kinloch Nelson, accomplished solo guitarist whose music is described as a synthesis of classical, jazz and American popular music. Nelson's program ranges from Bach to traditional Celtic to original pieces and may include references to Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry, and Woody Guthrie. His background as a world traveler and his exposure to many genres of music have influenced his creative improvisation and original composition. He has performed extensively in upstate N.Y., the Northeastern United States, Canada, South America and the United Kingdom.
Tickets are $8 at the door; admission is free for kids under 16. Other musicians featured during the SBCC's Summer Music Series (which takes place every other Saturday evening through September) include Lisa Bigwood, Cuttin' the Grass, the Geoff Smith Trio, the Bosstones, Maria Gillard, and Craig Hohm. Buy a summer music pass and enjoy six concerts for $33. Concerts start at 8 p.m. and decadent desserts will be available. All events are held at the South Bristol Cultural Center's new space, The SBCC in the Barn; located at 5323 Seneca Point Road, just up the road from the Bristol Harbour.
