John Kennedy: Free show at the Blackheath Bar and Bistro.

John Kennedy is the writer and performer of many fine songs, some of which have found a place in the hearts of music fans of the golden era of Australian independent music.

Kennedy started his music career in Brisbane in the '80s with his band JFK and the Cuban Crisis. He moved to Sydney and, when the band broke up, moved on to a strong solo career.

Kennedy has been very active in the last years with three new album releases: JFK and the Midlife Crisis, a second best-of album called appropriately Second Best; and this year Raining Treasure, with covers of songs by the Triffids, Paul Kelly, the Go-Betweens and many others.

Kennedy will perform songs from across his career at Blackheath Bar & Bistro on Saturday, November 16 from 7.30pm. Free.
