At well over a million miles of roadwork, including two stints as members of Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra, Pete and Maura Kennedy show no signs of slowing down either on tour or in the creative realm.

Originally based in Austin Texas, they spent a few years in the Washington DC area before moving to the East Village in New York City, where they have been based for most of the last two decades. They are known nationwide as the hosts of the late lamented “Dharma Café” program on Sirius Satellite Radio, and on Broadway, they are regular cast members of the annual Real Love Project tribute to John Lennon, working in that capacity with Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, Jackson Browne, Cyndi Lauper and a host of others.

Life on the road and time spent in the creative ecosystem of the Village have informed their songwriting over the course of fourteen duo albums and half a dozen side projects, and “Safe Until Tomorrow” is true to that tradition. What sets the album apart is the inclusion of several anthemic, rocking songs of social consciousness that convey a strong message best summed up in one of the song titles: “Be Silent No More.” Their music has been described as uplifting, empowering and encouraging, and in these turbulent times, they rise to the occasion with ”Safe Until Tomorrow.”

Fantastic show it's not everyday you get The Kennedys & The Slambo's in the same room much less playing together. Tom Clark's Treehouse is a wonderful little jewel of a venue... highly recommend.
