Taughannock summer concert series begins 7/9

Twenty-five years into a music career that has seen him lead the Tribulations, John Brown’s Body and a variety of other projects, Kevin Kinsella is ready to make a name for himself. The concert will showcase songs from his recently released record “Great Design” on ROIR Records. While Kinsella is mainly known for his reggae music, his influences are much broader, spanning soul, country, folk and much more. This new album is a nice overview of what I write,” Kinsella said.
