We can finally answer one of our audience’s most frequently asked questions, “When are you bringing The Kennedys back?” Agreed, this appearance is long overdue. A mainstay in our many theme shows and our annual house concert and pot luck dinner, it’s about time they had their own show at Concerts at the Crossing. If you’re a fan, you probably know the history of Pete and Maura Kennedy’s personal and professional relationship. Now in its second decade, it’s somewhere between fate and a fairytale. How else can you explain a chance meeting in Austin between two East Coast-born musicians that immediately sparked a songwriting collaboration, a first date at Buddy Holly’s grave, an enduring romance, and a creative partnership that radiates warmth, positive energy, and captivating music?
With the release of their tenth CD as The Kennedys and recent CDs by their Strangelings and Stringbusters side projects, as well as two new solo recordings (Pete Kennedy’s Guitarslinger, and Maura’s debut solo CD, Parade of Echoes added to their discography, Pete and Maura remain the Energizer bunnies of the folk/rock world. Their touring schedule makes Bob Dylan seem lazy – they’ve played about 1,500 gigs in the last 12 years, everywhere from house concerts to major festivals, and have recently rejoined Nanci Griffith’s tour as part of her band and as her opening act in theatres and festivals around the world. It’s great to have these old friends of Concerts at the Crossing back.
Most familiar to folk audiences as a founding member of the female trio Red Molly, Carolann Solebello returned to solo performance in August 2010 after six years with the band. She toured nationally and recorded three full-length CDs with Red Molly. As a solo performer she has three CDs to her credit, and is currently touring in support of her 2011 release, Threshold. We’re elated to have her back at Concerts at the Crossing after her initial appearance here in March 2010 with Red Molly on what was a dark and stormy night.
