Rick Cooper and Pat Kenneally grew up less than a mile apart in the burbs north of Boston in the era of the Everlys and Elvis. Delivering an entertaining mix of folk-rock, country, and blues to appreciative and enthusiastic audiences from Cambridge to Keene to Winnipesaukee, they have become an integral part of the vibrant local music scene.
On stage, Cooper & Kenneally pump out an assortment of early rock and roll covers and ‘The Good’ country (Jimmie Rodgers/Willie Nelson) that we know and love, all stamped with their unique brand. Their original folk-pop, a totally different beast, can range from poignant to humorous to rockin’. The vocal harmonies, blend of guitar/ukulele and tune selection are a lot of fun to listen to. Wonderfully talented musicians who understand what entertaining a crowd is all about,
Cooper & Kenneally have opened for such groups as Ernie and The Automatics, Ronnie Earl, and David Buskin & Robin Batteau. Their “Off Our Rockers” CD (available on iTunes) has provided the sound track for many a happy road trip. They are currently working on their second album.
