Bonfield is a self-taught finger-style guitarist who composes and performs original instrumental guitar music.

The most common question I get is “What do you call your music?”. Is fojazzical a genre? I just use whatever type of music will tell the story I’m trying to tell, so I use themes found in Celtic, American Folk, Blues, Jazz, Classical, even Rock and Roll. – Ken Bonfield

Over the past 15 years Bonfield has released 4 solo albums and 2 duo albums. All of his solo albums have been in the Top 20 on instrumental charts, according the CoffeeHouse release. He has  played throughout North America in venues such Cafe Lena, Club Passim, The Bluebird Cafe, Eddie’s Attic, The Grey Eagle, Clark Place, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and the Kent State Folk Festival.

This Friday evening, Bonfield tavels to Sunapee to perform at the Coffeehouse, an all-volunteer effort started to provide a listening room for professional and amateur musicians and appreciative audiences. There is no cover charge but they pass the hat for the musicians and venue expenses.
