ABM is delighted to announce a new working partnership with traditional fiddler/singer/songwriter/composer from England’s North-West and Ireland Mikey Kenney.
Mikey is an original. A passionate and well-respected advocate for traditional music – a brilliant Liverpool-style fiddler drawing primarily on his native North West English and Irish heritage – but grounded in a present-day, urban reality. He is a musician with wide-open horizons and insatiable curiosity for new possibilities. As evidenced on his latest album, The Reverie Road (Penny Fiddle Records), Kenney’s songwriting is both adventurous and earth-bound, with his high lonesome voice exploring sun-drenched Italian vistas, dream worlds and sounds of the city.
Mikey is currently working on a new album due for release next autumn. Mikey performs unaccompanied as well as being a prolific collaborator.
