Summer in the Studio concert - Elden Kelly
Elden Kelly has captivated audiences across the country with his virtuosic talents, voice and a technique that is the guitarist's envy. A band leader, guitarist, composer and singer-songwriter, influenced by such diverse genres as jazz, neoclassicism, American Roots, Hindustani and Turkish music, Kelly proves impossible to pigeonhole. In addition to nylon string guitar, Kelly is known for his work on the Glissentar, an 11-string fretless guitar which conjures up sounds reminiscent of India, Africa and the Middle East, or "Indo-Turkish bluegrass." Hear why the City Pulse says Kelly "meandered from the Ganges to Delta blues, bluegrass, flamenco and a folk idiom so hearfelt it bordered on the devtional."
