Marion, OH –The Palace Cultural Arts Association invites patrons to enjoy an evening with the local band Kensington Park at the Marion Palace Theatre May Pavilion on Friday, October 25 at 8:00 pm.
The classic rock duo Kensington Park is comprised of local musicians-guitarist Andy Kerr and mandolinist Vaughn Sizemore. Together, they bring an appreciation for some of the most popular songs from the 60s to today with a unique blend of stringed instrumentation. The ‘unplugged’ interpretation of classic hits presented by Kensington Park has become a listening favorite for many in the area.
Featuring such bands and artists as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, James Taylor, Buffalo Springfield, Foo Fighters, The Doors and others, Kensington Park skips through the pop music landscape with fresh arrangements, while addressing an occasional classical piece as well.
Andy Kerr is known to many for his lead guitar work with regional rock and roll acts such as Roundtree and As Is. Opening for bands such as Men at Work and Living Color, Andy has performed and recorded for 20 years.
Vaughn Sizemore has been performing since the age of fifteen. During the seventies and eighties as a bluegrass musician, Vaughn opened for numerous acts such as Bill Monroe, Eddie Rabbitt, Dr. Ralph Stanley, J.D. Crowe, New Grass Revival, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver to name a few.
Kensington Park will perform such Beatles classics as Norwegian Wood, Yesterday, Michelle, Here Comes the Sun, The Rolling Stones hits Paint it Black and Satisfaction, James Taylor’s Carolina in My Mind, Fire and Rain and Something in the Way She Moves to name just a few.
Andy and Vaughn also perform with the classic rock act The Radio Pirates who will perform February 2014 in the May Pavilion.
