Antje Duvekot with special guest Bruce T. Carroll

RESCHEDULED DATE IS OFFICIAL!!!  May 30, 2024The Kennett Flash is proud to present ANTJE DUVEKOT with special guest Bruce Carroll.Thursday, May 30, 2024$25 all tickets | $5 BYOB7pm show | 6pm doors | all ages Singer-songwriter, Antje Duvekot is poised to unveil her fifth studio album, “New Wild West”, on September 15th. According to Duvekot, this collection of songs marks the pivotal juncture of mid-life and represents a new rung on the ladder of healing from trauma. The songs on “New Wild West” signal a genuine shift in Duvekot’s relationship with some of the enduring themes she has grappled with over the years. “On the whole”, says Duvekot, “my older songs sought to disarm trauma by bluntly acknowledging its destabilizing nature and creating a space in which to exist with that sensation, both for myself and my audiences. In contrast, the newer songs have the teeth and tenacity to openly confront and defy trauma. As such, I feel very warmly towards this collection of songs. They are long overdue dissidents”. Duvekot’s amplified voice in mid-life carries a protective fierceness that resonates across the album. Songs like “Girl on a Wire” and “Evolution” salute the perseverance we all apply to our human journey towards finding our voice. Duvekot says of hers, “I crawled into music as a protective vessel when I was a teenager. It lent me safety and allowed me to stay open and let in more continuous sunlight than I could have, otherwise. I want to pay back that loan. Many of the songs on ‘New Wild West’ do that”. Yet another testament to the powerhouse that is Antje Duvekot, “New Wild West” is a sonic and lyrical knockoutthat marks a newly blazed trail in Duvekot’s songwriting career, celebrating the mid-life transition into a greatersense of self. As always, Duvekot deftly captures the essence of the collective journey that is the humancondition, and Mark Erelli hits it home with exquisitely executed musical orchestration.———————————————-An online processing fee of $5.00 per ticket (for tickets $16.00 and up) will appear on your order at check out. This online fee is waived when you purchase tickets over the phone or in-person.

Buffalo Nichols Trio w/ special guest Samantha Rise

The Kennett Flash is thrilled to present BUFFALO NICHOLS back at The Flash, this time with a trio!SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 20247pm show | 6pm doors | all ages$25 ADV | $30 DOS | $5 BYOB On his second album, The Fatalist, Carl “Buffalo” Nichols does things with the blues that might catch you off guard. There’s 808 programming, chopped up Charley Patton samples, washes of synth. There’s a consideration of the fullness of the sonic stage and the atmospherics of the music that can only come with a long engagement with electronic music. But this is no gimmicky hybrid or attempt to turn the blues into 21st century music by simply dressing it with skittering hi-hats. Nichols’ vision for the blues is of a form of music that’s intimately tied to everyday life in 2023, something that’s reflected not only in the choice of instrumentation, but in the complexities of the songwriting and the gray areas his lyrics explore. This is music that comes straight from the present, and as such, it’s a reminder that the same shit that drove the first blues singers to pick up a guitar is still present behind the throbs of deep bass hits today. The Fatalist sounds unlike any blues record you’re likely to hear in 2024. The stakes in his music are largely personal, rather than social; Nichols is singing about his life in the first person, and about his desire to forge his own individuality in a world and a music industry that make it nearly impossible to do so. Ringing through “The Fatalist Blues”—and The Fatalist—is a simple question: Do I have any say in how things are going to go? It’s the question behind so much of the physical and psychic pain in the blues, and in a frustrating age that preaches self-empowerment and shames the disenfranchised, it’s a stridently modern question, too. By playing his music the way he wants to play it, by refusing to give up his creative control or accept anyone else’s definition of the blues or indeed his own life, Carl Nichols has tried to forge an answer. Does he have any say in how things are going to go? Let’s find out.———————————————-An online processing fee of $3.50 per ticket (for tickets $15.99 and under) or $5.00 per ticket (for tickets $16.00 and up) will appear on your order at check out.

Lucy Wainwright Roche

The Kennett Flash is proud to present the legendary LUCY WAINWRIGHT ROCHE.Saturday, March 9, 20248pm show | 7pm doors | all ages$30 ADV | $35 DOS | $5 BYOB Those familiar with Lucy Wainwright Roche are aware of her bell tone voice, her unshakable melodies, and her knack for wise, wry lyrics that clench the heart.  It’s no surprise that Wainwright Roche is the daughter of Suzzy Roche (The Roches) and Loudon Wainwright III, half sibling to Rufus and Martha Wainwright. She grew up steeped in music.  But Lucy has carved out her own career as a touring singer/songwriter and recording artist, having sold over 60 thousand copies of her four critically acclaimed solo recordings released on her own label: Eight Songs, Eight More, Lucy, and There’s a Last Time for Everything.  Other recordings include a collaboration with her sister Martha Wainwright on Songs In the Dark, a collection of lullabies, and three duet recordings with her mother Suzzy Roche: Fairytale and Myth (winner of Vox Pop Independent Music Awards), Mud and Apples (IMA nominated), and most recently, I Can Still Hear You —  an album largely recorded in the darkest hours of the Covid shutdown in the spring of 2020 in NYC and hailed as “one of the year’s best” by Americana Highways.  For over a decade, as a solo act, armed with a guitar, a deadpan sense of humor, killer songs, and a voice that makes tough guys cry, she’s built a solid following across the US and Europe.  As an opening act she has often appeared with such luminaries as the Indigo Girls, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Neko Case, and Rufus Wainwright, and she’s one of a few who can step out alone in front of a thousand strangers and play an entire set to a rapt audience. ———————————————-An online processing fee of $3.50 per ticket (for tickets $15.99 and under) or $5.00 per ticket (for tickets $16.00 and up) will appear on your order at check out.

Steve Forbert and Freedy Johnston [SOLD OUT]

The Kennett Flash is proud to present Steve Forbert and Freedy Johnston!Thursday, February 15, 2024$40 all tickets | $5 BYOB8pm show | 7pm doors | all ages Steve Forbert, Moving Through America : Years before Americana music earned its own category at the Grammy Awards, Steve Forbert helped pioneer the genre’s mix of folk, roots-rock, and richly delivered storytelling. He’s been a torchbearer of that sound for more than four decades since, navigating the twists and turns of an acclaimed career that’s taken him from gold records to Grammy nominations, from New York City’s CBGB to Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, from his 1978 debut album to 2022’s vital and versatile Moving Through America.    Freedy Johnston: A gifted songwriter whose lyrics paint sometimes witty, often poignant portraits of characters often unaware their own failings, Freedy Johnston seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the early ‘90s and quickly established himself as one of the most acclaimed new singer/songwriters of the day. While character studies of Johnston’s lyrics get the most attention, he has a gift for melodies that wed pop melodicism with folk-influenced simplicity, as typified by 1992’s Can You Fly and 1994’s This Perfect World, the latter featuring his best-known song, “Bad Reputation.” When Johnston’s tenure with the major labels ended with 2001’s Right Between the Promises, his recording schedule slowed down considerably, but 2010’s Rain on the City and 2022’s Back on the Road to You confirmed his style and his talent were still serving him well. ———————————————-A processing fee of $3.50 per ticket (for tickets $15.99 and under) or $5.00 (for tickets $16.00 and up) will appear on your order at check out.
