For over two decades, husband and wife Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed the highways and byways of the US and the UK, as a folk/pop duo and as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra. As The Kennedys, they have released over a dozen CDs, are longtime core artists on WUMB, and were named Artists-in-Residence at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Their original music is uplifting, encouraging and empowering, with an always-positive vibe, and their choice of covers is emblematic of their love for the classic songwriting of Buddy Holly, The Beatles and Bob Dylan. They are regulars at the annual New Bedford Festival and have played legendary venues including Carnegie Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, and Boston Symphony Hall.

“It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.” – The Buffalo News

Chris Trapper began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band The Push Stars (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours – including a run with Matchbox TwentyThe Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent.  As a singer /songwriter, Chris is most known for his original song This Time, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for the movie, August Rush (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures). His music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories. The New York Times has called his work “classic pop perfection.”

The new CD Symphonies of Dirt & Dust is a collection of 12 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper and produced by Jason Meeker at Silver Top Studios, Boston, MA. Guest musicians include Dan McLoughlin of The Push Stars on bass and NYC singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild on harmonies. “Every record tells a story. For me, much more than gimmicks, my albums are like diary entries, or truthful accounts of where I’m at in life. I suppose that might be the same for most songwriters, but in the spectrum of the music business, it’s still an animal that’s nearly extinct.” – Chris Trapper      www.christrapper.com
