Kenneth Boulton has performed extensively as soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and in Europe. Although his experience has touched all facets of the keyboard repertoire, Boulton has developed a specialty in contemporary American music. His debut recordings of Elie Siegmeister's major works for solo piano, released in 1999 on compact disc by Naxos, have garnered international critical acclaim and have been described as “dynamically charged, fiercely committed, and brilliantly virtuostic” (Classics Today). This has led to additional recording projects for the Naxos label, highlighted by a recently completed disc of solo piano music of William Mason. His performances were recently heard on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and across Canada on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio. Boulton has also collaborated with cellist Ovidiu Marinescu on the enthusiastically received recording “Fiesta Latilla” as well as a recording of music for cello and piano of Nicolai Miaskovsky.

A Seattle native Boulton earned his bachelor’s degree from Washington State University. In addition he has a master’s and doctorate degree in piano performance from the University of Maryland at College Park, where his teachers included Nelita True and Thomas Schumacher. Past awards, among others, have led to appearances with the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra and the Washington-Idaho Symphony. He maintains an active teaching schedule, currently serving as a member of the Master Faculty and head of the piano department at The Wilmington Music School. Boulton is also in demand for his lectures and clinics on contemporary piano music for students.

Boulton’s chamber music collaborations have been highlighted by performances in such venues as Merkin Hall in New York City, Rachmaninoff Hall of the Moscow Conservatory in Russia, and Oxford University in England, as well as a residency at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in California.
