Live classical guitar music for brunch in our Main Street Dining Room.

James Bacon earned a BFA from SUNY Purchase in classical guitar performance in 1986 studying under Benjamin Verdery and David Starobin. He’s played throughout the Hudson Valley as a soloist and with flutist/pianist Sheila Hamilton. Over the last few years he’s studied with Jorma Kaukonen and Stefan Grossman concentrating on finger-style blues-based roots music. In 2015, he released his debut CD “100% Organic Bacon,” recording a variety of blues, classical and ragtime pieces. His second CD is due for release in October 2019 and includes an original composition and pieces by Blind Blake, Skip James, Francisco Tarrega, Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, Jorma Kaukonen and Rev. Gary Davis. Most recently, he’s been studying pieces with alternate tunings used in Celtic guitar and the compositions of the Celtic harpist Turlough O’Carolan.
