The Kennedys (Pete and Maura) have been playing together since 1994. Usually, when they play live it’s just the two of them. Even so, with their two guitars, they still get a rather full sound. I’ve always described the full band Kennedys as sounding like The Byrds but with female lead vocals.
Having just passed their 20th anniversary as a band, Pete and Maura have not lifted their feet off the pedal. Separately and together, Pete and Maura are planning three new records for 2015. One of those records is titled West. It’s the latest Kennedys album (the other two records will be solo ones). West is full of the jangly folk-rock that the Kennedys are known for. If you listened to WCWP back on March 11th, you know that: Scott Perschke and I played four songs from it then. Of course you’ll hear it tonight and be able to buy a copy of it.
