The Banqueting Hall of the keep provides the magical setting again for the latest in our Music in the Castle series of concerts. The Kennedys albums have been largely unrecognised in the UK, except by a devoted coterie who scan the Internet for import-only releases. That will change this year as the duo prepare to release “Closer Than You Know”, their first fully promoted UK album since “Life is Large” was a radio staple some years back.
After a recent barnstorming tour with Nanci Griffith (they produced Griffith’s latest CD, “Intersection”), the duo are ready to strike out on their own, this time with an eye to the UK side of the pond. Their live show is honed from literally thousands of Stateside one-nighters, and their new songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent.
The Bar will be open from 6.30 and TKB will be doing the catering. As ever, another great night of music.
