From the Beats to the hipsters, and from the trads to the anti-folk, the coffeehouse has always been the ideal environment for cool music that flies under the radar. Somehow acoustic music is enhanced when your hands are wrapped around a cup of hot coffee. The social aspect of conversation and storytelling, and the camaraderie of an all-volunteer staff, lend a vibe that big concert halls can never replicate. For the Fall of 2013, Pete and Maura Kennedy celebrate this tradition with a tour or some of the classic coffeehouses, both old and new, in the Northeast. This is the kind of situation where their "all request" format really shines, so come prepared to hear your Kennedys favorites, and maybe some stories from the endless road...
