Barney Kenny Live in Session at the Electric Bar

Komedia Bath
22-23 Westgate Street Bath, BA1 1EP

This is a FREE event in Komedia Bath’s Electric Bar FROM 2 – 4PM.

Having supported the likes of Martin Carthy, Geoff Lakeman, Mad Dog McRea, Willie and the Bandits, Alden Patterson and Dashwood, Kitty Macfarlane and Blair Dunlop, and after working alongside Peggy Seeger, Dougie Maclean and Martin Simpson in the past, Barney Kenny is armed with a 12 string guitar and a Lapsteel slide guitar.

Barney Kenny’s music doesn’t fall into the normal trappings of ‘folk’. Heavily influenced by world music, blues and rock, Barney blends storytelling and acoustic music with his foot-stomping delta style.

His writing crosses many boundaries throughout a live set, from Anglo-Celtic tunes to southern-blues rock to retellings of traditional songs from the transatlantic scene. His slide playing is ever-exciting to watch whilst his more driving style of guitar playing is the perfect accompaniment to his lyrical narratives.

All ages are welcome and food and drink will be available.
