AdvertisementBased in Exeter, Devon, but championing sounds from the American South to the Texan plains, The Sam Kennedy Trio bring an energetic fusion of Blues, Rock n' Roll and Rockabilly which is sure to have you up and out of your seats. Frontman Sam and drummer Lucy met through Lucy's late father, the Blues Guitarist, Julian Piper, and created the band during the Lockdown of 2020, as both embarked on new directions in their musical careers. Sam reminded Lucy a little of her father, with his sense of humour and ability to rip it up on stage, and so the band was born.
Both have played numerous Blues festivals across the UK, and in Lucy's case, further afield to the likes of Norway (Notodden), Germany (Freiburg Blues festival) and Mississippi (Juke Joint Festival). In 2019, Lucy also worked with German blues label Ruf Records as a session drummer, promoting their Blues Caravan tour, and recording an album 'High Risk, Low Reward' with recently signed artist Ryan Perry, which was nominated for a BMA. If you want to hear an energetic set inspired by the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carl Perkins and Jimi Hendrix, amongst others, be sure to check the band out!
