KINDRED

 For many years and in many families and groups of friends, music has been a significant part of their lives. That music comes alive in the kitchens of many of those homes.  The members of KINDRED have been a part of those music filled families and have played in many kitchens.... Come to see KINDRED- with kitchen music taken to new heights!!  KINDRED, a collaborative of singers and musicians entertain you with guitars, mandolins, bass, penny whistles,percussion, and keyboards.  KINDRED enjoys playing a wide variety of musical stylings from an acapella sea shanty to traditional and celtic tunes, folk, bluegrass, rock and roll, songs from the bayou and even a bit of "torch and twang"~ all Roots Music!  Come to our kitchen party!

Check out some of our recorded music in the MUSIC tab above and look below for a list of upcoming shows. We hope to see you soon!

WELLAND – Time to move out of the kitchen and onto the stage. 

For popular local group Kindred, the latest transition comes Saturday, December 10 in the Welland Community Wellness Complex theatre. 

The kitchen as a meeting place for song, music and celebration is traditional for many, especially downeasters, country folk and others. Count Kindred among them. As a bio says, Kindred’s members have been part of those musical families and have played in many, many kitchens. 

But also on stage, which is where we heard them last December and where we plan to be back in a few weeks for their performance in the 400-seat Wellness Complex theatre. If last year’s show is any indication, you can expect a sensory treat from this talented group of musicians and vocalists. 

My contact is Joni Romano, who provided info about the show and what there is to look forward to. The final set list wasn’t complete at the time, but she did say that based on the group’s repertoire, be prepared for a rich cross-section of music from various genres. This would include: melodic and humorous Celtic tunes, folk story songs, gospel, bluegrass, country and Cajun. Of course, a few spiritual and secular Christmas season songs will also be part of the show. 

The group’s name should be a give-away that its members are related. Kindred consists of: David (guitars, mandolin) and Joni Romano (mandolin, guitars, percussion, pennywhistle), David’s sister Darlene Romano (guitars, mandolin, banjo), Ken Elder (bass) and his wife Amy Elder (keyboard) and newest member Wayne Meehan (drums). As Joni pointed out, all the members are harmony vocalists and take turns with lead vocals. 

The showcase for this year’s concert was described as “a brief Musical Journey related to the Celtic music traditions as they move across the ocean to North America and how that music blends with other music in the new land to form a tapestry.” Intriguing? You got that right. 

The lead in will be a recorded narration that explains the diversity, the traditions and the cultural heritage of the music and lyrics – perhaps best described as a sharing of roots and routes. Be prepared for stops in places like the Appalachians, the Louisiana bayou and Acadia, among others – and what a treat they are sure to be. It’s a Musical Journey not to be missed! 

Tickets are available at the Wellness Complex office, at $12 for passholders and $15 for non-passholders. Want a  tip? Don’t wait ‘til last minute to get yours, you may end up disappointed. This isn’t a particularly large venue and the group has many fans.

    I saw your group for the first time last night, August 14th, and really loved your music as well as the singing. You're all very accomplished musicians and you provided a wonderful musical journey from Nova Scotia to New Orleans. I'm really looking forward to seeing your group perform again in the very near future. Enjoy your vacation and I'll see you soon. Thanks Gary. We hope to see you again! ~ Kindred

    My friend Cathy ( drove in from Dundas ) , Bev and I really enjoyed the gig last night at the Cafe on Main. . Musicians get so busy with work and family life etc. which makes it easy to fold. Kindred keeps on jammin and keep it tight. Thanks for bringing so much joy and pleasure to so many people.
