Ken Hamm a “blues roots musical artist

Ken Hamm to perform Nov. 4

Really hot acoustic guitar and slide guitar at St. Michael’s Hall in Chemainus.

If you’re looking for a hit of some “really hot acoustic guitar and slide guitar,” you’ll want to take in Ken Hamm’s performance Wednesday, Nov. 4, 7 p.m. at St. Michael’s Hall in Chemainus.

“Hamm doesn’t require a lot of introduction,” says a release from the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society, announcing its Chemainus City Limits series of winter concerts.

He’s a blues and roots musical artist with an international reputation, who has been playing professionally since the late 1960’s.

“He has a reputation as a dynamic, moving performer, mixing hot slide finger style acoustic blues with original songs based on his travels and encounters,” says the release.

Admission to the concert is $10; tickets available at Chemainus Foods or at the door.

The CVCAS will be announcing more concerts in the series soon, but has two dates already lined up, for people who want to mark their calendars.

On March 18, they will feature “the ever-popular Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whiteley,” who will stop in Chemainus with their band on their western tour.

Then, on April 7, “the wonderful Lizzie Hoyt,” will be here with her trio. Among Hoyt’s high notes is recognition with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal for music.
