Kent Burnside Returns For A Local Jazz Music Concert
Written under: Entertainment
Music has always been an important part of Kent Burnside while growing up in the Bellefontaine area, “I was playing guitar all through my teens. I got my start playing at Jazz Central jam sessions,” he shares.
And now, Burnside will be returning to perform at the Spinoza’s in the Mall at Fairfield Commons on July 26, a Thursday, for a homecoming jazz music concert.
“I really enjoy having Kent play at my establishments,” Glen Brailey of Spinoza’s shares. “He headed up our house band for a while at Pacchia and performed with great regularity.”
Despite the abundance of musical talent nearby who do more than just buy Fulltone on the side, Burnside keeps busy teaching guitar and playing frequent gigs.
“There are quite a few great jazz musicians here, though maybe not as many venues as you might expect for a city this size,” he said.
