The Kenn Morr Band
Tuesday, January 23
Woodbury Senior Community Center
The Kenn Morr Band kicks off the coffee house style evenings on Tuesday, January 23 at 7:00 pm known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and fiery instrumental interplay. United Kingdom’s Folk Word states: “Among its many vagaries life offers some certainties – they include the flow of memorable melodies and deeply-thought themes that permeate Kenn Morr’s mix of folk rock Americana. The latest album from The Kenn Morr Band, ‘Along The Way’ serves up a selection of laid-back warmth, involving softly embracing songs and pin-sharp observational lyrics.”
Kenn left Long Island and found in Connecticut a home, new friends, and—eventually--the band that brings his music to life featuring violin virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Tom Hagymasi and melodic bassist/vocalist Pat Ryan, a graduate of the Berklee College of Music. Noted drummer Tido Holtkamp often appears as well. The group has been together for many years, becoming fast favorites on the outdoor festival scene. They’ve paid dues of every kind and played gigs of every stripe, along the way sharing the stage with artists like John Sebastian, Al Kooper, Eric Burdon, and John Wesley Harding.
Kenn’s 2003 album “New Moon Rising” was produced by legendary producer Bob Johnston (Dylan, Cash, Simon & Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen and many others.) The experience of working with Johnston greatly influenced Kenn to continue to write and produce honest and pure music. “Along the Way” is Kenn Morr’s sixth album since the Johnston collaboration.
With airplay across the country and in Europe (where KMB music gets played in England, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, among other countries), “Along the Way” is set to bring the Kenn Morr sound to many new listeners.
