Astonished audiences often ask Kenny White after a live
performance, "How come I've never heard of you?" when in fact, the pianist,
singer/songwriter, producer and arranger has been very well known in the
NYC recording scene for decades. He comes to the world of the touring
singer-songwriter following a long and successful musical journey. "Long List of Priors," his aptly named new
album, is the latest collection of original songs: indelible snapshots of the
human condition, from heart-wrenching to hilarious and observed with the
precision of a diamond cutter.
Born in New York City and raised across the river in Fort Lee,
New Jersey, Kenny White began his career in the 1970s, touring exclusively as
the keyboard player for Jonathan Edwards and Livingston Taylor, with whom he
opened Linda Ronstadt's legendary, "Living in the USA" tour.
This spring Folk Music Concert is sponsored by the Friends of the Oak Park Public Library.
