John Kelly w/ Rusty Speidel at The Stage, February 8

John Kelly has been part of the Central Virginia singer-songwriter circuit for many years. As a special treat, he will come in out of the cold along with Rusty Speidel on Tuesday night, February 8, from 8-9 (est)  to perform for us all in support of WTJU’s Folk Marathon.

This is a free event, open to all (although it is a part of the Folk Marathon so donations are welcome). Masks are required for all attendees.  You can also listen on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it at WTJU’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.  But concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience. WTJU is located at 2244 Ivy Rd in Charlottesville, right next door to Vivace.  There is plenty of parking, both in our lot as well as the Sentara lot next door.
John Kelly is a Charlottesville-based singer songwriter with more than two decades of solo acoustic performing experience. He began his music career in his native Connecticut and played regularly there and in New York City before moving to Charlottesville, Virginia, Now a regular on the Central Virginia singer songwriter circuit, John has become known for his soulful voice and insightful original songs. In late 2019, he will release a new album, In Between, produced by Rusty Speidel and featuring a set of ten songs that cover a range of topics, from the complexities of the world we live in today to family and romantic love and more. In Between was engineered and mixed by James McLaughlin at Mountainview in Charlottesville, Virginia. Kelly’s previous record, Brighter Days, was produced by acclaimed producer, performer, writer, and arranger Rob Mathes.
