Denny Breau returns to North Church for Christmas Extravaganza

Ann & Denny Breau

FARMINGTON - Denny Breau is returning to the Farmington Historical Society’s North Church on Saturday Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. The doors open at 6 p.m. for a pie social.

Denny has put together a wonderful evening of holiday music from around the world as well as traditional favorites and sing-alongs as he loves audience participation! The night’s guests will include LA’s power house chanteuse Deb Morin as well as Maine’s own country stars Melinda Liberty (Maine Christmas song) and "Mr. Bass" Frank Coffin ... as well as the lovely and talented Ann Breau on flute.

Denny started playing guitar when he was 9 years old and was performing professionally by his early teens. During more than 30 years as a full-time musician, he has performed with many well-known artists and picked alongside outstanding guitarists including Bryan Sutton, Harvey Reid, J.P. Cormier, Pat Donohue, Dan Crary and Steve Kaufman. Denny was a member of roots music trio Turkey Hollow with Tom Rowe and Tom's son Dave starting in 1998. Since Tom's death in early 2004, Denny and Dave have continued to perform as Turkey Hollow on a limited basis. Denny was inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame in 2004, the youngest inductee in the history of the organization.

In addition to an active solo career, Denny gives private guitar lessons and teaches music clinics. He also fronts the Denny Breau Trio. Both in solo and trio performances, musical boundaries disappear as Denny takes his music to wherever the joy and spirit of the moment leads him.

Denny is a triple threat: a consummate picker, evocative songwriter, and a singer with a ”voice that is warm and inviting but completely unpretentious— much like the singer himself,” according to Lucky Clark. Mainers have long considered Denny a “must –see,” but they are happy to share a favorite son with those “from away.”

Show tickets are $15 for the general population, $10 for High School and College Students, $5 for Elementary Students. This not to be missed concert so call for reservations at 207-778-2006.
