The Kennedys in concert Feb. 17
The Kennedys, the folk/rock duo of world class string player Pete Kennedy and singer Maura Kennedy will use their full palette of vocal and instrumental colors to bring their songs to glowing life Feb. 17.
Maura’s lead vocals range from comforting to yearning, from girlish to womanly, from exuberant to delicate, sometimes bolstered by her own sweet harmonies and those of Pete and several guests.
As usual, multi-instrumentalist Pete provides a vibrant tapestry of chiming, jangling and twanging guitars, as well as mandolin, keyboards, bass and drums, interwoven with Maura’s sturdy acoustic rhythm guitar, harmonica and glockenspiel.
Meaningful songs, gorgeous vocals, and wizardly instrumentation await you. Perkins Center for the Arts, 395 Kings Highway. Doors open 7:30 p.m.; concert starts 8:15 p.m. $15 includes coffee, tea and treats.
For tickets, call 235–6488 or visit www.perkinscenter.org.
