Upcoming Performances in the Bickford Theatre Kicks off with Kaki King





Kaki King: Modern Yesterdays

Friday, September 30, 2022 | 8:00 PM

Live Arts returns with a new and bold performing-arts line up bringing a cutting-edge guitar concert and renowned musicians and performers to the Bickford Theatre such as Kaki King, Horszowski Trio, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

The season begins with a guitarist who is considered one of the most unique and influential artists playing today. Kaki King continues to deconstruct and redefine the role of a solo instrumental artist though virtuoso technique, insatiable imagination, and boundless humanity. Her now-signature multi-media performance, both provocative and moving, uses projection mapping to present the guitar as a tool that can shape both music and video content, all triggered (and often improvised live) via her Ovation Adamas Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar, customized specifically for her multimedia performance. Art, Sound, and Motion will be on full display in this stunning display of music and video.

“a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision”—The Boston Globe
