Ray Bonneville in the KAFM Radio Room!
Add to your calendar
Date: May 26, 7:30 pm
Details: Every now and then, you run across someone with a library’s worth of stories to tell. But unlike the 
raconteurs who regale friends with well-embellished versions of their exploits, these storytellers have 
lived so much, they reveal chapters of their hard-won wisdom slowly, carefully, like layers peeled from 
an onion.

Ray Bonneville didn’t even open his storybook until his early 40s, some 20 years after he started 
performing. But with a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, this 
blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired “song and groove man,” as he’s been so aptly described, 
luckily found his rightful calling.

On his fourth Red House Records album, Easy Gone, Bonneville delivers 10 reasons why patience 
pays off. In each, his guitar work shimmers like stars emerging at dusk. His voice carries the rich, 
natural timbre of time, though underneath that pearl-like smoothness, one hears its gritty core. His 
harmonica rhythms add even more texture to his sound.


Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
Doors open at 7:00pm
General Admission: $18.00
