Kevin Townson (b. 1962) initially starting with the electric guitar playing Rock and Roll, he performed throughout the North Texas area from 1978-1985. In the late 1970's he was inspired by a video of Andrea Segovia performing at the White House for Jimmy Carter. This inspired and motivated him to further his classical studies. He says “I was so taken back by the fact that this guy must be 80 years old and he’s playing guitar (very well) to people that were absolutely spell bound.” Kevin decided at that point he wanted to be like that when he grew up.
Kevin is currently performing extensively as a soloist and with his Latin-Jazz group, The Kevin Townson Band, for a variety of events throughout the DFW Metroplex. He has released two CD’s to date featuring his unique blend of flamenco, jazz and pop sounds. Pictures from Spain (2003) and Between The Lines (2005).
Kevin is also parting with his experience by teaching guitar. For the past 15 years he has been the Director of The Childbloom Guitar Program in Parker County TX which introduces music through the guitar to young people 5-12 years of age. Kevin says “I really love teaching this method. It’s so wonderful to see the kid’s eyes just light up when they learn something they thought was not attainable. It’s such a fun way to communicate with young people and hopefully inspire them to greater goals.
