Even after ten years, over a thousand gigs and 500,000 miles of touring as a married, music-making couple, singer-guitarists Pete and Maura Kennedy haven’t killed each other. The duo savors each instant in life and in each other’s company, and it shows in their music. The Kennedys have been charming audiences, record buyers and critics for the past decade with their exuberant mixture of folk, rock, country, pop and their own brand of secular gospel, a philosophical depth in their lyrics, and joyful, kinetic performances and recordings.
Opening the evening will be Vickie Russell whose eclectic sound filled with rich vocals, rhythmic piano and guitar is the music you didn’t know you were looking for! Her powerful and expressive performances have a way of charming audiences of all ages. Her secret weapons: her smooth, silky voice, a quirky sense of humor and an extraordinary flair for songwriting.
