Kaki King

Event Date: 
Friday, August 2, 2013 - 8:00pm

Best known for her percussive, virtuosic take on string instruments, Brooklyn-based guitarist-composer Kaki King has expanded and reconceived the role of the solo instrumental artist, constantly kicking at the boundaries of what is expected. For her solo performance, she brings a collection of several rare instruments, including a harp guitar, a dojo, a hybrid between a guitar and koto that King made herself, and, of course, her custom Ovation Adamas guitar.

“Her command of the guitar creates a unique listening experience that explores every raw emotion.”- Paste Magazine 

"Guitarist Kaki King's rightful place is among kings of the strings."- Chicago Tribune

"Kaki King has never been just a guitarist. While her immaculately picked guitar remains the centerpiece, she creates immersive, organic and cinematic compositions." - Relix
