The Kennedys with Andrew Dunn
When not serving as Nanci Griffith’s backup band, The Kennedys have been joyfully rocking the folk world with their own unique brand of high-energy performance. It’s more than the powerful close-harmony singing. It’s more than the hot guitar work. It’s more than the driving rhythms and power chords. It’s the obvious chemistry between Pete and Maura Kennedy that is so charming and so contagious that the listener can’t help but grin and join in their fun.
Our opener, Andrew Dunn is also a Folk Project member. Andy’s unassuming stage demeanor belies a performer with strong writing skills. He makes astute observations of the world around him, and translates those observations into songs filled with personal contact, passionate language, and a gentle view of the world.
