Fiddle, Vocals, Concertina, described by Bearded Magazine as “A veritable magician of such substantive law, Kenney’s music...is a subtly powerful homage to the earth and hearts of humankind.... Once heard, never forgotten.” Mikey Kenney is a fiddle player and balladeer from Liverpool, whose playing is steeped in both English and Irish traditional music.
Well known as a constant traveller and collaborator, Mikey is a member of the acclaimed Robert Burns' celebration Band of Burns and works regularly with Italian legend Vinicio Capossela. Mikey’s new solo album, The Reverie Road, allows the listener a dreamy, intriguing journey to quell the world-weary soul and transport it to another time and place. Inspired by his home city of Liverpool’s haunts, his time travelling and working in Italy, traditional fiddle music, poetry and lands farther afield, this album is at the forefront of creative and imaginative music-making through melody and rhyme.
