Connor Kennedy & Minstrel http://www.connorkennedy.org/ Hailing from the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, Connor Kennedy & Minstrel cut their proverbial teeth bringing a sound from town to town, up and down the Hudson River Valley, they call home. The band – Connor Kennedy (guitar/vocals), Will Bryant (organ/vocals), Lee Falco (drums/vocals), and Brandon Morrison (bass/vocals) – have been working together, fearlessly creating a unified sound – a sound that has been lost in today’s technologically imposed distance.

From the Edge

I had no schedule or set destination, so I just rolled along, headed west. Out in the open country areas, I took my time and took in the scenery. Farms and woods, rolling fields, late September at its best: it was glorious weather. I thought that perhaps I’d treat myself, and find a cheap motel and crash that night. Maybe have a beer or two in a bar within walking-distance of my motel. It was a good plan.

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
