Pete and Maura Kennedy return to begin 2018. More than any other performers, The Kennedys are the “musical soul” of the Sunday Street Series, having played the very first show in our twelve-year history, returning for frequent Kennedys’ shows, as well as being an integral part of our annual Bob Dylan Birthday Celebration.
The Kennedys began their performing career as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra and have continued that relationship to working with Griffith on her most recent album. As a duo, The Kennedys have released eleven studio albums, and both Maura and Pete have released several solo albums. Expect songs from a recent Kennedys’ album, WEST, as well as songs from recent individual solo albums: Maura’s VILLANELLE and Pete’s HEART OF GOTHAM along with new songs as and favorites from their extensive catalogue.

Opening is Bridgehampton’s Caroline Doctorow who, in addition to her own songs, has shown herself to be an acclaimed interpreter of those of Nanci Griffith, Richard and Mimi Farina, and Mary McCaslin, among others. Caroline will showcase songs from her recent album, DREAMING IN VINYL, a tribute to songwriters of the late 60’s and early 70’s. (www.carolinedoctorow.com)
