Ken Bonfield / Bio

Fingerstyle Guitarist, Ken Bonfield has performed throughout the United States for more than 20 years. Based in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Bonfield is a regular at guitar festivals and has released seven albums. His latest, Legacy, is a solo effort that focuses on harp and baritone guitars, with several new arrangements of original tunes Bonfield recorded on earlier albums. Today his sophisticated Americana compositions feature a solid dose of Celtic, classical, and traditional folk and blues influences best described as American Baroque. Bonfield performs with his custom 11-string harp guitar, a 6-string baritone guitar, a 6-string high-string guitar, and occasionally a standard 6-string; all made by famed New Hampshire Alan Carruth.
