NOTE: Due to COVID exposure, the concert has been canceled. All tickets will be refunded, according to the Johnson Hall website.

Denny Breau plans to perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6, at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center at 280 Water St. in Gardiner.

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 fingerwork that sets ears aflame. The lightning-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.

Box office hours are noon to 2 pm. Tuesdays and noon-3 p.m. Wednesday-Friday.

Tickets cost $18 for the in-person show and $10 to livestream and may be purchased online at or call 207-582-7144.
