Guitarist Kaki King had already earned a glowing reputation as one of the most inventive solo guitarists going when she managed to out-do herself this past March with the release of “The Neck Is a Bridge to the Body,” an incredibly inventive multimedia piece marrying multiple projection surfaces and richly-layered guitar compositions.
Employing her acoustic guitar as a projection screen for protean images that echo and in some cases presage changes in the ebb and flow of the music, King has earned unanimous plaudits for the in-concert presentation of the piece.
Now she will headline Slyfest 10, a two-day multi-artist festival to be held from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Griffis Sculpture Park, Mill Valley Site.
Slyfest is presenting an ambitious lineup that includes performances by world-renowned percussionists Arthur Lipner and Bernard Woma – both of whom will be performing and offering on-site master classes – as well as a host of regional favorites.
Tickets are $15 advance, $20 day-of for a one-day pass, $30-$40 for a two-day pass, and $50-$70 for a VIP pass (Ticketfly.com and SlybootsBuffalo.com).
