Mikey Kenney – majestic singer, poetic songwriter and traditional folk, bluegrass and Americana style fiddle player and multi-instrumentalist could’ve been born any time in the past 500 years, but it’s no coincidence that he is alive and well today; for there are no coincidences in nature or the music that grows from its seed. A veritable magician of such substantive law, Kenney’s music is a subtly powerful homage to the earth and hearts of humankind, and it succeeds from the bawdy level of spit and sawdust barroom sing-alongs to the lofty heights of the soul set free. Once heard, never forgotten.
