As part of Springville Center for the Arts’ Acoustic Autumn series, enjoy the music of Kinloch Nelson, in concert on Saturday, Nov. 1.

Kinloch Nelson, a solo fingerstyle guitar player, creates a synthesis of folk, jazz, classical, rock, American popular music, and original compositions. His programs range from J.S. Bach to the blues and may include references to Miles Davis, Franz Schubert, John Fahey, The Ventures, The “folk scare,” Flatt and Scruggs, and the occasional TV theme.

Kinloch Nelson began performing in 1969. His 40 years and counting career has run the gamut from solo classical and folk concerts in coffeehouses and folk festivals to club dates with jazz, country, rockabilly, rock, and rhythm & blues bands.

The concert takes place at Springville Center for the Arts, at 37 North Buffalo Street in Springville. Tickets are $12 presale or $15 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.
