About the Artist:
Growing up on Long Island, Kenn was inspired by such lyric and melody-minded acts such as Gordon Lightfoot, Simon and Garfunkel, Graham Nash, and Jackson Browne. Rex Fowler of Aztec Two-Step became his friend and supporter. The Kenn Morr Band enthralls audiences of all sizes, from intimate coffeehouses to the stages of venues as demanding as the famed Bitter End in New York City and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas on the New Haven Green.
The Kenn Morr Band features violin virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist Tom Hagymasi and melodic bassist/vocalist Pat Ryan, a graduate of Berklee College of Music. Known for its close three-part vocal harmonies and firey instrumental interplay, the group has been together for many years. They have become a fast favorite on the outdoor festival scene and often features noted drummer Tido Holtkamp. They’ve paid dues of every kind and played gigs of every type, along the way sharing the stage with artists like John Sebastian, Al Kooper, Eric Burdon, and John Wesley Harding.
