The Kennedys

  • Stoltz Listening Room 40 East Dover Street Easton, MD, 21601 United States (map)

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, for two decades, has led them not only west but all over the US and the UK many times.

Now celebrating their twentieth anniversary both as a band and a married couple, Pete and Maura have released a new album, “West,” an instant Kennedy’s classic seamlessly weaving together their influences over the last two decades: Buddy Holly-style roots, the tuneful cadences of the Everly Brothers, and the ringing 12-string jangle of the early Byrds, all interspersed with darker moments that recall British folk rock a la Fairport Convention.
“The Kennedys are worthy of the title First Couple of American Folk and Americana.”
