Artistry of the Guitar

Artistry of the Guitar: Ken Bonfield, Eric Skye & Stephen Bennett

Fingerstyle guitarist Ken Bonfield has performed throughout the United States for more than 20 years. Although he came out of the 1960’s folk tradition, Bonfield was closely associated with new-age music in the mid 90's. Today his sophisticated Americana compositions feature a solid dose of Celtic, jazz, and traditional folk influences that might best be described as American Baroque.

His compositions are performed with his unique "chamber ensemble " of handcrafted instruments ranging from baritone guitar to an 11-string harp guitar to a high-string guitar which Bonfield likens to a 6-string, Steel-String ukulele. Most of his compositions and arrangements utilize alternate tunings that extend the lower register of a standard guitar.

 

Weaving together influences of folk, jazz, classical, and world music into a style that is uniquely his own, Teja Gerken's contemporary steel-string fingerstyle guitar playing reflects his diverse musical interests. While many of his composition employ alternate tunings, two-handed tapping, percussive effects, and other extended guitar techniques, others simply rely on his keen sense of melody and movement. Within this framework, Teja has created a repertoire that appeals to fellow guitarists as well as to listening audiences, and while original material is his main focus, he can also be found playing Irish traditionals, the occasional jazz standard, or improvising on themes by classical composers.

 

One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. An engaging performer, her unique approach to the instrument virtually transforms the guitar into a lyrical choir, then a marching band, then a Japanese koto, then a Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles tune and the next, Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez. Founder of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s All Star Guitar Night®, she enjoys sharing her joy of music via her charity, the Music-For-Life Alliance. Her double CD Nightlight-Daylight placed first in 11 national awards, and is the first CD to incorporate interactive fiber optics.
