Theater Pictures Reviews

About Springfield Mountain: “...a gorgeous project. Rooted in Celtic songs of tragedy and driven throughout by beautifully spare arrangements, Kennedy has created a delightful CD for fans of these traditional songs and sounds. Kennedy’s voice is crystal and her piano befittingly grand..” -Style Weekly

“Singer Kelly Kennedy is the biggest find...she has a beautiful clear contralto voice and applies it to some of the loveliest melodies in the tradition.” -Dirty Linen

Theatre performance: “The real star of this production is ‘subtlety’ skillfully displayed by Kelly Kennedy. Subtlety, that simple understated state of being takes mastery to achieve and Kennedy does it well... her performance as Proctor’s wife is unforgettable.” -Style Weekly
