The Kennedys

Production with Red Camera

Pete Kennedy soundtrack composer (seen here with wife Maura and Rocket Man) is a member of The Kennedys, an American folk-rock band. Their first album, River of Fallen Stars, was released under the name "Pete and Maura Kennedy"; they released all subsequent albums as "The Kennedys". They met in Austin, Texas in 1992, when Pete Kennedy was playing in Nanci Griffith's band, and for their first date, each drove 500 miles to meet at Buddy Holly's grave in Lubbock, Texas. Soon, Maura Boudreau joined Griffith's band as a harmony singer, and they began their career as a duo when they opened for her during her tour in Ireland. They are influenced by the Byrds and other 1960s rock and folk-rock artists. Their 1998 album Angel Fire featured many songs with literary references, such as "A Letter To Emily" and "Just Like Henry David".


They have performed in clubs and theatres throughout the United States, a cruise, and at Bill Clinton's first and second inaugurations.
