Music in the Gallery with The Kennedys
Pete and Maura Kennedy, New Bedford Folk Festival favorites, 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. This year, they celebrate their twentieth anniversary both as a band and a married couple. Rather than indulge in a nostalgic look backward, they've taken Dylan's dictum "don't look back" to heart; writing and recording forty new songs. The venue is the beautiful and historic James Arnold Mansion on County Street in New Bedford, MA. Now owned by the Wamsutta Club, the mansion provides ample parking, easy access into the building and the charm of great music, food and company in an historic setting. Food and beverages, including wine, will be available for purchase.
