Deni Bonet plays Unison in New Paltz

The violinist and songwriter Deni Bonet burst onto the national scene in the ’90s as the first-call violinist for such era-defining artists as REM, Sarah McLachlan, the Indigo Girls, Warren Zevon, Cyndi Lauper, Robyn Hitchcock and on and on. Throughout the years, the classically trained artist has maintained a vibrant solo career, finding a common ground between the classical and roots traditions in which her instrument is a featured axe and the rock singer/songwriting genre in which she has so often found employment. In 2017, Bonet released Bright Shiny Objects, a rollicking and interesting collection of rock, roots and sometimes-proggy instrumentals.

Deni Bonet performs at the revitalized Unison Arts Center this Saturday evening, October 6. Ticket prices range from $15 to $25.

Deni Bonet, Saturday, October 6, 8 p.m. Unison Arts Center, 68 Mountain Rest Rd., New Paltz, (845) 255-1559,
