On Saturday night, March 16, Fraser Valley Folk Concerts presents Kelly Hunt, at the Historic Church in Fraser. Kelly is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music—born and raised in Memphis, TN but now based out of Kansas City, MO. Kelly’s primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with confidence and clarity of one who has been singing all her life. Accompanied by her 1920s tenor banjo, 5-string clawhammer banjo, and guitar, Kelly’s songs meld traditions of folk, classic country, and old-time music for a sound that is both timeless and fresh. Her songwriting is poetic but approachable, full of feeling and alive with storytelling.
Kelly’s debut album “Even The Sparrow” will hit radio and international distribution at the end of Q1 2019, and she will be on tour in support throughout 2019 and 2020.
Staś is a classically-trained percussionist, pianist, and violinist. He brings elements of all these to the table when accompanying Kelly, but his instrument of choice is a 19th c. violin. Staś’ deft arrangements lend vibrance and depth to Kelly’s songs, weaving between banjo and vocals with evocative grace. For more information about Kelly, visit: kellyhuntmusic.com
