The Kenn Morr Band

Sat 9/12 2:00 PM at Main Library, Hunneman Hall

The Kenn Morr Band is an original folk/rock/Americana act featuring three part harmony and acoustic music driven by guitar, mandolin, violin, accordion, bouzouki, bass and drums. The KMB is currently on tour in support of its latest release, the double disc set Afterimage. Recorded live at Sandy Brook Studios in Colebrook, Connecticut, it features fresh interpretations of material from eight previous releases. Kenn and his band revisited the songs to capture the group as it sounds live, with crisp studio sound and minimal overdubs. www.kennmorr.com.
