Next concert : Thursday 19 October, the Angora, Paris 



 “... it seems that the sandstorms of the Australian outback have left a permanent mark on Chris Kenna's vocal cords. The result is a beautiful, rough, dark and soulful voice, ably counterbalanced by Melissa Cox's violin. The combination of the two was captivating.”

—The Next Gig (Dutch music magazine)

 

...the amazing Kenna and Cox (he with the voice and soul to raise the dead and she with the melody to make them glad to be alive...).

—musician Matt Tonks


His deep, gravelly voice is perfect for his lavish blend of blues-folk-country. He told stories, punctuated by the occasional other-worldly roar, of Australian cowboys, gangsters, love and death.

“... the performance is astounding.”

A chance encounter in a Parisian bar in 2008 launched a serendipitous collaboration between two Australian musicians: Chris Kenna and Melissa Cox. As a soloist, Kenna had previously opened for the likes of Jeff Beck, Peter Green and Tommy Emmanuel; while Cox had fronted her own group, Black Sesame. Together, Kenna and Cox have played at festivals around Europe, and have supported Alabama 3 at Tripod in Dublin.
