Denny Breau Jose Leiva

A Denny Breau concert is set for 7 p.m. Friday, May 7, at Cadenza, at 5 Depot St. in Freeport.

Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He first draws in an audience with a finely arranged melody and then slides effortlessly into scorching finger work that sets ears aflame. The lighting fast guitar lines that seem almost humanly impossible to accomplish are balanced with those that have a quiet intimacy and wrap tenderly around his carefully crafted songs.

He mixes genres with ease — folk, Delta blues, country and jazz — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,” according to Lucky Clark writing for the Kennebec Journal.

Tickets cost $18 in advance, $20 at the door unless otherwise indicated. Doors open 30 minutes before the show.
