Sunday, Jan 25, 6:30 pm Live Music with Jason Kenny with Fil Pate

Formerly of HomeGrown Revival and The Kenney-Blackmon String Band, Jason is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, mandolin, banjo) and songwriter. Since 2003, he has released four full-length albums and collaborated on many others, including Corey Smith’s “In The Mood” and “The Good Life.”

Jason has shared the stage with many talented artists including Jonathan Byrd, Corey Smith, Zac Brown, Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Col. Bruce Hampton, Donna the Buffalo, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, John Keane, Larry Keel, Ike Stubblefield, Kevin Kinney, Darrell Scott, Jeff Mosier, and The Atlanta Ballet.

Jason Kenney’s new record, “Turn This Sorrow Into Joy,” releases April 15th, 2014. Produced and recorded by Grammy nominee John Keane, the album features an all-star line-up of musicians including: Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Leah Calvert, John Keane, Rob Henson, Chris Enghauser, Jamie Hood, and Graham Terry (Tornado Riders).

“Make no mistake, ‘Turn This Sorrow Into Joy,’ by Jason Kenney, is a Folk record. Though listeners will be tempted to relate it to Mumford and Sons or Avett Brothers because of its personal storytelling and genre defying instrumentation, it is a much truer representation of an American Folk record. It deserves comparison with Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie in its call to the downhearted and weary to carry on, together.

Jason is joined on this show by Tampa based mandolinist and local favorite Fil Pate.
