The Kenny and Amanda Smith Band
The Kenny and Amanda Smith Band combines gutsy, heartfelt vocals, brilliant instrumental talents and a powerful, contemporary sense of song choice and arrangement into one of the most compelling new sounds in bluegrass today.
Originally from Nine Mile, Indiana, Kenny is widely considered one of the most important and influential flatpicking-style guitarists of his generation. He is a two-time IBMA Guitarist of the Year award winner, his professional credits include six years with the popular Lonesome River Band.
Born in the small town of Davisville, West Virginia, Amanda grew up singing in church choirs and participating in talent contests at local fairs. She started playing guitar in high school to accompany herself, and soon discovered bluegrass music through female artists such as Rhonda Vincent and Alison Krauss.
With dynamic vocals and inventive instrumentation, this exciting, diverse duo also features pitch-perfect song choices that marks every song from the Kenny and Amanda Smith Band.
