Introducing .... The Simon Kennedy Band 8 August 2015
Yes we welcome back our 'Introducing ...' feature and our Vid Of The Day - The Simon Kennedy Band! Formed in 2014 by Dundee born guitarist Simon Kennedy, enlisting Mirek Hodun on the organ, they set about writing and producing their debut album 'Make Up Your Mind' which was well received by critics and fans alike. BBC Radio 2’s Paul Jones said the band was “deservedly the recipients of a great deal of praise” and the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association voted it Album of the Month. In 2015 Edinburgh based session drummer Brian MacLeod was brought in to complete the line up - a guitar/hammond led trio playing their own brand of funky gospel Blues. With the success of their debut album they have been deservedly sought out to play major festivals like The Orkney Blues Festival, Perth’s Southern Fried Festival and Glasgow's Merchant City Festival!
