The 8:30 p.m. concert in the Cinema’s Sky Room will be preceded by an open mic at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be for sale at the Cinema on the day of the concert, with discounts available for Cinema Arts Centre or Folk Music Society of Huntington members.
With well over a million miles of roadwork, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra, Pete and Maura Kennedy show no signs of slowing down either on the road or in the creative realm. Life on the road and time spent in New York’s East Village have informed their songwriting over the course of 14 duo albums and half-a-dozen side projects. Safe Until Tomorrow, their May 2018 release, is true to that tradition. What sets the album apart is the inclusion of several anthemic rocking songs of social consciousness that convey a strong message best summed up in one of the song titles: “Be Silent No More.”
