Gloucester MA, June 3, 2016 —The Rocky Neck Art Colony (RNAC) is thrilled to welcome guitar master Kinloch Nelson for a solo concert at the Rocky Neck Cultural Center. Many will remember Kinloch when he stunned Gloucester’s infamous Rhumbline a few years ago with his phenomenally entertaining virtuosity and style!
Kinloch has been playing guitar for fun since 1956, seriously since 1968 and professionally since 1973. Born in 1950, Kinloch grew up during the high point of broadway-to-the-movies musicals, the blooming of TV with its youth-focused American Bandstand and emphasis on cowboys and Indians, the heyday of AM radio and the beginning of “underground” FM radio. The ever-expanding music landscape in these years served as the backdrop to Kinloch’s guitar explorations, and the foundation of a 45 year performance career playing folk, classical, R and B, rock, country, ragtime, and jazz music in bands, ensembles, and as a solo performer. Over the years Kinloch has played with such notables as Tom Paxton, Amos Garrett, Buddy Guy, and long-time influence Danny Gatton.
Recently Kinloch has been an in-demand player at the Healdsburg, Montreal, Newport, Miami and Woodstock Guitars Festivals. He can be heard as guitar demonstrator on the websites of noted guitar builders Ken Parker (Parker “Fly” Guitars), Bruce Petros (Acoustic Guitar Magazine award winner), Julius Borges (founder of Newport Guitar Festival), Bernie Lehmann, Bryan Galloup and David MacCubbin. Kinloch can be heard on Heartland Records, BKNjr Records, and Sampler Records. This is an evening of music not to be missed!
