Seamus Kennedy is unique among folk singers. He is blessed with a gorgeous voice, an impeccable guitar style and the ability to impersonate a dyslexic sheep. Audience members at a Seamus Kennedy concert find themselves chortling, laughing, singing and sometimes even dancing uncontrollably. Join us for an evening of uproarious family-friendly fun at the Knox Presbyterian Church on January 4 at 8 p.m. and hear Seamus Kennedy’s hilarious repertoire of Irish, Scottish and American songs, stories, and tongue twisters.
Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Seamus Kennedy honed his craft over 37 years of performing in America and Great Britain. He was first influenced by the legendary Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem; from them he learned the importance of being an all-round entertainer, not just a solid musician and singer.
Members of the Washington Area Music Association have voted Seamus “Best Irish Male Vocalist” several times. He has released 14 recordings and co-authored a book of road stories, Clean Cabbage in the Bucket (And Other Tales from the Irish Music Trenches), with four of his musical colleagues. You can learn more about Seamus at his website, seamuskennedy.com.
NOTE: If the church lot and lawn are full, do NOT park on Allen St. It is reserved for residents. You may park on the Route 50 frontage road in front of the church (check parking signs) or across Route 50 in the Fairfax County Public Library lot. Traffic light with crosswalks and walk signals is available at Route 50 & Allen St.
