Ken Ford, King of Strings

Electric – a word that describes not only Ken Ford’s violin, but also the man himself. With electrifying live performances, Ford takes the violin center stage, playing with a passion and fervor that rivals the biggest and baddest guitar solos. Since his start, Ford has produced 4 solo albums and has collaborated with Bruno Mars, Jill Scott, Chaka Khan, and Cee Lo Green. Ford takes audiences on a roller coaster ride, twisting R&B and hip-hop with jazz. Ford performs at the Newberry Opera House February 28.
