Happy April! Let's welcome Spring and April with "In The Pocket" 
this is a live version of a song that we recorded earlier. It became so popular with audiences that we recorded it again!

Happy Monday!
Today we're sharing another video recorded live in studio a few weeks ago when we had a "visiting artist" in town.   This track was originally on the CD "Unknown" and has since become an audience favorite.  Here's "Mis Amigos" with James Kennedy on guitar, Matt Alles on bass, Catherine Lawson on violin, Eric Madison on drum set, and Troy Mullins on timbales etc.  The video portion is not much to watch until the end.... but the audio.... well.... give a listen

Wishing for warmer days?  Let this video take you back to a warm summer day....

Tuesday, February 13, 2018


Well, if this isn't one of the most festive weeks of the year!  Monday- Lincoln's Birthday, Tuesday - Mardi Gras, Wednesday - Ash Wednesday AND Valentine's Day, Thursday - a New Moon and Solar Eclipse, and Friday - Chinese New Year - Year of the Dog.
So to celebrate all of that, here's a recording of a song that's been an audience favorite through the years. 
and by the way, if you have a favorite venue you'd where you'd like to see James Kennedy & Friends this spring/summer, let them know or let us know....
Thanks and Enjoy!

Happy Monday!  Today's tune is from warmer days.... "Persuasive" recorded live at the 2017 "Lawn Party"   Let's hope we can "persuade" that Groundhog to predict an early spring! 
Thanks and enjoy the video....

Happy Tuesday!  Here's another piece that was recorded Live on 1/13/18.... this one is from a past CD called "Unknown"   the tune is "Appalachian Morning"  and there's a nice picture of mountains to  go with the music.  The "visual" portion was not the best - - so enjoy the lovely picture as you listen.....
