    Easton, MD, US | 7:30pm

    The Kennedys return to the Avalon Theatre's Stolz Listening Room in picturesque Easton, MD on the Eastern Shore. Doors open at 7:30; showtime is at 8:00pm Tickets: $25 Call: 410-822-7299 or visit: https://tickets.avalontheatre.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=693 The Avalon Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for residents of Easton, Talbot County, and the Eastern Shore through its diversified arts and entertainment programming. 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.” Lee Zimmeraman - No Depression

    Pot Luck & Refreshments: We have a "pot-luck" dinner an hour before the music begins. All are invited to attend, with contributions very welcome but not required. Audience members have been very generous in providing a wonderful selection of food -- no one is going hungry! We also usually have a good selection of soft drinks and other beverages, but feel free to contribute your choice of beverage. Most performances consist of two 45-minute sets, with dessert and coffee served during intermission. This is also an excellent opportunity to meet the musicians -- and peruse their CDs.ReservationsThe suggested donation for each show can be found on the announcement and generally runs $20 per person; you will see a hat by the front door. All donations go 100% to the performers.If you would like to attend one of our house concerts, please let us know as early as possible for our planning purposes and we will hold a place for you. Usually our shows do "sell out" since we can only accommodate so many guests safely and comfortably. You don't have to bring a cushion for the floor -- we will have chairs set up. We know that some emergencies on concert days are unavoidable, but if you do have a sick pet, an overtime soccer match, or an ailing grandmother, please give us a call as soon as possible, so that we can give your seat to someone else.We are a non-smoking household. Smoking outdoors only, please.Also expect cats Doors at 6pm for pot luck; music at 7pm. Suggested Donation $20 http://www.sleepyhollowfolk.com/index.htm
