Denny Breau and Chris Anderson Are Headliners at Cold River Mini Concert Series

JACKSON, NH — Building on its reputation as the north country’s hot spot for live music in an intimate setting, The Wildcat Inn & Tavern is hosting two exceptional dinner concerts this October, when the Denny Breau Trio and Chris Anderson of the Outlaws perform on their storied stage on October 19 and October 24, 2019. Both shows feature up-close dinner-club style seating and fine dining options, craft cocktails and local beers. Tickets range from $10 – $20 per person, plus dinner.

The shows are the latest installments of the Wildcat’s Cold River Mini Concert Series. Partnering with Jonathan Sarty and tapping into the reputation of his Cold River Radio Show, the Tavern offers these shows six times a year. The room will be set in nightclub format with white table cloths and candle light.


Denny BreauOn October 19, concert-goers will enjoy the Denny Breau Trio. Breau has wide-ranging musical influences, describing himself as American roots – blues, country, a little jazz, with a homage to Chet Atkins and Lenny Breau. He shared, “I love that whole style of playing. You can sit by yourself and be the whole band. I’ll be giving a Chet lesson on the Show – a Chet medley and explaining how it’s done. That’s the biggest part of my show. Classics like Sandman and See You in My Dreams, Freight Train – they are all so much fun to play.”

Denny Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He first draws in an audience with a finely arranged melody and then slides effortlessly into scorching fingerwork that sets ears aflame. The lighting fast guitar lines that seem almost humanly impossible to accomplish are balanced with those that have a quiet intimacy and wrap tenderly around his carefully crafted songs. He mixes genres with ease — folk, Delta blues, country and jazz — “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,” according to Lucky Clark writing for the Kennebec (Maine) Journal. Opening act is singer/songwriter and host Jonathan Sarty. Tickets are just $10 general admission. Call for ticket reservations – 603-383-5602. Show starts at 7:30pm.
