"Engaging, multi-talented violinist Deni Bonet. Unlike most violinists, she is not nailed to the floor. And she doesn’t shy away from going head-to-head with the guitar player, having fun and breaking an erstwhile-stodgy image of the grand old instrument.” ~ Forbes Magazine
Join us for an afternoon of music featuring violinist/singer Deni Bonet and guitarist/singer Chris Flynn. Also a songwriter, Deni is a classically trained violinist who treats audiences of all ages to quirky, melodic, and fun folk rock music.
It's no secret that Deni Bonet can play a violin like nobody's business. Or that she writes memorable songs that make you want to listen again and again. For years, Deni has been honing her craft as a violinist, singer, songwriter and performer. Her style ranges from pop to roots-rock to new folk. Although classically trained, Deni quit the classical world because she hated having to wear black and sit still! She has a stellar resume, having performed and recorded with Cyndi Lauper, R.E.M., Sarah McLachlan and many others. Her previous appearances include four sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, NPR’s Mountain Stage, The Great Wall of China, the United Nations, and the White House for President Obama.
Chris Flynn is a guitarist and singer who has accompanied Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Ronnie Spector and Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper) along with Simon Kirke (Free, Bad Company), Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Garland Jeffreys, Willie Nile, and many others. He has performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center and served for many years as the musical director of the All Star Irish Rock Revue in New York City featuring Irish luminaries such as Cait O’Riordan (The Pogues), Joanie Madden (Cherish The Ladies), and raconteurs Alphie and Malachy McCourt. He has been performing and touring with Deni Bonet for the past four years.
