Ken and Jane Brooks along with Joe and Nel Kennedy play their vintage folk, bluegrass, gospel and classic country at the Wayside Theatre on Saturday, May 26 at 7 pm.
These award-winning musical friends have played acoustic Americana together for over 30 years, both as fellow band members and informally at jams. Together, they’re a fine vintage of that sweet harmony of instruments, vocals and friendship.

In the late 1980’s Ken, Joe and Nel performed together as Breakneck Mountain - a five piece bluegrass band that released the recording "Company’s Comin’."

Later, guitarist Ken played with Bluegrass Supply Company, Union River Band and his current band – Katahdin Valley Boys. Ken was inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame in 2012. That same year, Ken and bass player Jane Brooks were named Maine Country Music Association's Duo of the year. They have recorded four CD’s together.

Joe and Nel Kennedy went on to Evergreen, recording 5 CDs in the band’s 22-year history. An Evergreen reunion concert will be at Wayside on Sept. 17. Harpman Joe and bass player Nel were inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014.

Tickets for the Brooks and Kennedy show are $12. Baked goodies and refreshments are sold at intermission and there is a door prize and a 50/50. Our little theatre is located at 861 North Dexter Rd (Rt. 23), Dexter. FMI contact Joe Kennedy 277-3733 or Chester Bekier 270-1166, or Facebook Wayside Grange & Theatre.
