Mo Kenney – The Lemon Tree - Sunday 04 February 2018

Recommended Posts

If you are a fan of quirky, acoustic music we feel you might enjoy Juno award nominated Mo Kenney’s stuff, her soulful acoustic music with pop sensibilities will make for an interesting evening.

With her recently released third album, “The Details”, Mo Kenney traces her own strange, devastating, and ultimately hopeful trip through the trials and tribulations of booze-fuelled breakdowns, clouds of depression, and disintegrating relationships. On each of its 14 tracks, she unflinchingly confronts her annihilation and eventual redemption, leaving nothing out. The concept album is her most personal and cohesive work to date—combining elements of bruising rock ’n’ roll, vivid psychedelia, and haunting, left-of-the-dial pop, Kenney navigates the darkest waters in her life with self-deprecation, genuine soul-baring, and typical black humour.

Mo Kenney’s numerous achievements for her songwriting and music are impressive for an artist who began releasing and touring less than five years ago: 2013’s Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada Prize for her song Sucker, the USA Songwriting Competition’s 1st Place Winner (Folk) for IFaked It, numerous Music Nova Scotia and East Coast Music Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award and a JUNO award-nomination. Mo Kenney has been steadily building an international reputation and in 2016 was nominated for a Juno Adult Alternative Album of the Year for her previous album "In My Dreams".

This is a rare chance to see her play in the UK, in one of only 2 Scottish dates. Well worth catching her now in an intimate cabaret style setting, because who knows what size of venue she might be playing next time.


Support for this show will be local Act Katie Mackie.

Katie Mackie is a local alternative singer-songwriter who has been singing and playing piano since she was a young age. She has gigged around Aberdeen in bands and as a solo artist for several years and built up a solid reputation.
