NEW! Kenny will be interviewed on KBCS the morning of the show, 10/22 @ 11:00. 91.3 on FM dial or online at www.kbcs.fm|
Kenny White makes a return appearance in the Seattle Folklore Society series @ Phinney, and we're looking forward to this show. He was in town in August to open for Peter Wolf at the Triple Door, having produced Peter's last four albums. It's been a while since we've hosted him solo, after his 2014 show with Amy Speace. He has been a favorite with our audiences since we were introduced to him when he played with Cheryl Wheeler in past shows. His satirical, dry, and insightful lyrics along with his keyboard mastery make for a night well-spent. As a bonus, he will be introducing his new cd, Long List of Priors, featuring David Crosby singing background vocal on A Road Less Traveled.
Kenny has been in the music business for more than 25 years as a producer and studio pianist, and during that time he's written hundreds of television and radio commercials. He has developed a solid and successful second career as a singer-songwriter. A dazzling piano player, he's performed with a range of artists in the US and Europe.
White's impressionistic songs grow on you over time, as his images evoke your own memories and associations, and the subtly insistent grooves and instrumental textures stay with you well after the record stops spinning, said Sing Out! magazine.
Representative of the many quotes on Kennys website is this one: "His lyrics are dryly humorous, sometimes heart wrenching, sometimes laugh-out-loud ironically funny. Vocals are unpolished and real. My Recurring Dream is an especially interesting song, wry and funny and strange. Don't miss this guy. See him live; you won't be disappointed."
Day of show tickets at the door are $2 more for adult tickets.
