Kennedy Road is a Toronto-based Americana duo, comprised of Sheila Carabine and Brian MacMillan. He’s the tall one. Their seamless vocal blend and electric, often hilarious on-stage chemistry is perfectly matched by their intense and poignant songs.
Sheila comes by collaboration honestly, having spent the last 16 years in the Juno-nominated folk duo Dala. Brian is a much beloved singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who has released three solo albums. He has performed with Barenaked Ladies, Wailin’ Jennys, Garth Hudson, John McDermott and Lowest Of The Low.
Kennedy Road’s debut album “A Little Fight Left Yet” was released in March of 2020, and garnered them a Canadian Folk Music Award Nomination for “Vocal Group Of The Year”. The album features 11 original songs, including “The Heart Will Buzz”, “Oh Darlin’ Don’t You Know”, “Job Song” and “Time”.
As fresh as they are familiar, the songs on this album capture Kennedy Road’s one of a kind connection and their deep musical roots. With velvety vocals and dreamy guitars, “A Little Fight Left” conjures sorrow and humour, grit and grace. This is music from the heart, for the heart.
