|Performing:||Sunday July 21|
|Set Time:||2:00 – 2:40pm|
Kerry Kearney, a slide guitar master, plays and works his instrument to limits that amaze even the most seasoned musician or cultured music fan. The sounds Kerry creates from his vintage, stock and custom made guitars are as unique as his song-writing and original melodies.
Kerry Kearney’s style, music from the “Psychedelta”, is his own brand containing an upbeat mix of American Blues & Roots, created from writing and performing on the circuit for over 40 years. Along with his band, he has continued to experience an overwhelming and positive response over the airwaves and especially when performing live. His wailing upbeat style of blues, driven by tasty, inspired guitar riffs, electrifying slide and infectious rhythms, has allowed Kerry to amass a huge loyal following.
His latest studio effort, Smokehouse Serenade, offers listeners the opportunity to participate in the continuation of Kerry’s musical journey. He takes his audience from foot stoppin’ smokin’ hot blues to the rootsy ballad and back. His band is as tight as his electrifying guitar sounds. This is sure to be a number one fan favorite!
Kerry was voted “Best Guitarist of 1999” by the LI Voice and “Bluesman of the Year 2004” by the LI Blues Society. He is also the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Sound Award (L.I.S.A.) from the LI Music Hall of Fame. In 2013, he and his band mates were each inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame. He has toured nationally and internationally with the Marty Balin, Allman Brothers Band and Dickey Betts, and has performed with such contemporaries as Sonny Landreth and Robert Randolf. Kerry and his band have also shared the stage with the great BB King at the NYCB Westbury Theater and at the Paramount Theater in Huntington, NY, the Robert Cray Band with the Blind Boys of Alabama, the Blues Brothers starring Dan Akyroyd and Jim Belushi, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and legendary ZZ Top front man Billy Gibbons, to name a few. Kerry and his band can also be seen performing on the main stage entertaining the blues crowd at the annual Great South Bay Music Festival on Long Island.
