Ken Wheaton

February 18, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Join us for Saturday Jazz! This month, we welcome Ken Wheaton.

When a neighbor sold him a Sears guitar for $15.00, Ken’s career as an instrumentalist began. Ken started playing professionally in high school. In the late 70s, he performed with Under the Table, opening for acts like Tommy James and the Shondells and Gary “U.S.” Bonds.

For the last several years, Ken has led his own groups and developed an active career as a solo performer and song writer, drawing on his interest in classical, jazz and contemporary music. He specializes in acoustic finger-style guitar, featured prominently on his CD Jessica’s Dreamin’. Ken plays his own songs, plus jazz and blues standards, and pop favorites from the 60s to the present.

Jazz at Sequoya features local musicians on the third Saturday of every month. The series is generously funded by the Friends of Sequoya Library.
