This Connecticut-based band offers up some New England warmth and a few cuddly canines.
The Kenn Morr Band’s sixth album, Worth Imagining brings a variety of instruments together to create a warm, soulful sound. Accordion, violin, harmonica, and mandolin flirt with guitar, piano, bass, and percussion. Moor’s deep, succulent voice (often accompanied by backing vocals) calls to mind folksingers like Richard Thomspon and John Prine. On the record, Morr spins ten poignant yarns about love, friendship, and loss. Despite its contemplative nature, Worth Imagining is earnest and uplifting. It may make you want to take a long drive into the sunset.
