Kenny Hill has been a professional classical guitarist for twenty-five years, and has performed extensively throughout the United States and Mexico. His ability and experience as a performer result in a special gift for making an instrument that is very playable and appealing to the player, as well as the audience.
He has been awarded two major grants from the California Arts Council. One of those grants was to establish a guitar building program inside Soledad State Prison. He continues to act as a guitar building consultant, there and in other prisons. He is also the founder and director of the New World Guitar Co., listed elsewhere in this directory. Mr. Hill is a regular contributor to several national magazines, including Guitar, Soundboard, and American Lutherie, (Biography courtesy Kenny Hill, September 1997).
Kenny Hill has built quality concert classical and flamenco guitars since 1975. He builds about 25 guitars per year in his shop in the mountains outside of Santa Cruz, California. The Performance and Signature Series guitars are built in Hill's shop located in Felton, CA.
