The Kennedys in Concert October 21:

New London’s Friday Night Folk series welcomes folk duo

In a career that spans two decades, New York duo The Kennedys have covered a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock (rooted in their early days in Austin), and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith.

Pete and Maura Kennedy, both East Coast natives, met in Austin, Texas, joined forces with Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra for a couple of years, and set out on a road that has led them not only west but all over the US and the UK many times. Last year, they celebrated their twentieth anniversary both as a band and a married couple. Rather than indulge in a nostalgic look backward, they took Dylan’s dictum “don’t look back” to heart; writing and recording forty new songs.

2015 saw a Maura solo CD, a Pete solo CD, and the release of “West,” an instant classic Kennedys duo set that seamlessly weaves their influences; Buddy Holly style roots, the tuneful cadences of the Everly Brothers, and the ringing 12-string jangle of the early Byrds, interspersed with darker moments that recall British folk rock a la Fairport Convention.

Ultimately, Pete and Maura knit these disparate threads into a coat of many colors that sounds like an American mythos; it’s the search for musical roots and the fulfillment of a personal American dream that takes shape in songs. The Kennedys are hitting a songwriting high point, and from that point they follow the well-worn American path West.

Concert starts at 7:30 PM. Doors Open at 7:00 PM.
