We’re delighted to be working with Mikey Kenney again!

Mikey Kenney 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.

With a reputation for both making quality music and producing wondrous flourishes of creativity, Kenney is also a multi-talented and in-demand collaborator, including, formerly, with Band Of Burns, and now, with his electric trio World Turned Upside Down, as well as playing with BBC 6 Music favourite Alabaster DePlume and Italian singer-songwriter Vinicio Capossela. Mikey is also Musical Director of the Lancashire Youth Folk Ensemble.

‘This is magical, medicinal music that defies labels and borders’ – Liverpool Echo

‘Mikey Kenney is an artist for whom music is a calling, not a career choice… a singular and inspiring talent… unfettered by expectations of geography or genre, and a wanderer of worlds both seen and invisible, Kenney is an authentic free spirit’ – fRoots

‘Superbly charismatic fiddle playing… once heard, never forgotten singing’ – FRUK
