Maura Kennedy in Something New Concerts
December 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Maura Kennedy was born Maura Boudreau in Syracuse NY, home of a fantastic live, original music scene when she was a teenager. She played in many different bands, on different instruments while she was in her formative years: bass guitar in punk and heavy metal bands, keyboards and acoustic guitar in a British Folk Rock band, guitar and mandolin in a roots-rock band. She's been performing with her now husband, Pete Kennedy since 1993, when she joined Pete as part of Nanci Griffith's backup band (The Blue Moon Orchestra) on a 2 month world tour. When that tour was over, Pete and Maura struck out on their own as The Kennedys, and have been performing, writing and recording ever since.
We are concluding our adventurous Something New Concert Series with an evening of Maura's evocative songwriting and masterful compositions of dreamscapes and crackling energy, a most auspicious to wrap up the year and welcome a new one.
GPJAC would like to thank The Village of Port Jefferson and the Port Jefferson Harbor Education & Arts Conservancy for their support of this concert.
