    Pete and Maura Kennedy's albums are little archives of earnest, Byrds-y, folk-rock jangle in a world that doesn't know it still needs that. The relentlessly touring married couple are no strangers to the lure of the highway, and on 2006's SONGS OF THE OPEN ROAD they cover 15 classic travelin' tunes from such beloved artists as Bob Dylan, Nanci Griffith, and Glen Campbell.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (p.56) - "[T]he sources for these tunes are as varied as they are tasteful, running the gamut from old folkies like Dylan and Bob Neuwirth to contemporaries like Victoria Williams..."
    No Depression (p.107) - "They treat Gram Parsons' apocalyptic 'Sin City' as a dreamy waltzy, and crank it up a bit on the Byrds' 'Eight Miles High,' complete with Coltrane-inflected twelve-string solo."
