Kelley Hunt @ The Zoo Bar

November 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Early in a remarkable decades-long career the MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE said: “Surprises don’t often crop up on the well-trodden blues circuit. So welcome Kelley Hunt. This Kansan is a full-blown phenomenon: powerhouse singer, hardboogieing pianist, polished songwriter…” That review is still the most economical characterization of an artist sometimes difficult to describe. Roots R&B/Americana singer/songwriter/piano player/guitarist KELLEY HUNT has always been a challenge to the music industry’s penchant for easy artist definitions — a woman who muscled her way onto the scene on her own terms with an identity steeped in blues/roots/gospel traditions and a refreshing originality. She makes music with it’s righteous roots intact that also crosses boundaries, has an open-minded, exploratory attitude and takes on social and political issues. It’s all delivered with a commanding, passionate stage presence and superior vocal, keyboard and songwriting skills. For first-time listeners it can be a lot to unpack, requiring an extensive sample of her music to get the full picture.
