CONTRIBUTED BY SUNDILLA
It has been a while, but on Thursday, March 16, The Kennedys will make their long-awaited return to Sundilla.
Showtime at the AUUF is 7:30 p.m.; advance tickets are just $20 and can be found at Spicer’s Music, Ross House Coffee and online at sundillamusic.com. Admission at the door will be $25. Free coffee, tea, water and food will be available, and the audience is always welcome to bring their own favorite food or beverage.
At well over a million miles of roadwork, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra, Pete and Maura Kennedy show no signs of slowing down either on tour or in the creative realm.
Originally based in Austin, Texas, they spent a few years in the Washington, D.C., area before moving to the East Village in New York City, where they have been based for most of the last two decades. The Kennedys are known nationwide as the hosts of the late lamented Dharma Café program on Sirius Satellite Radio, and on Broadway, they are regular cast members of Theatre Within’s annual tribute to John Lennon — working in that capacity with Jackson Browne, Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Cyndi Lauper and a host of others.
Life on the road and time spent in the creative ecosystem of the Village have informed their songwriting over the course of 14 duo albums and half a dozen side projects. The Kennedys’ music has been described as uplifting, empowering and encouraging, and anyone who describes one of their shows as “fun” will be 100% right!
