Kelly Hunt is a singer-songwriter of Americana/Roots music. Originally hailing from Memphis, TN, she now calls Kansas City home. Her style is a compelling blend of folk, blues, country, and Appalachian old-time music. She accompanies herself on a 1920s tenor banjo, combining time-honored clawhammer and finger-picking techniques with her own improvised strum-and-pick patterns, which highlight both the rhythmic and melodic distinctiveness of the banjo. But her primary instrument is her voice, which rings out with the powerful clarity of someone who has been singing all her life. Kelly's songs spring from a place of rich imagery and bespeak a genuine love of storytelling. Her debut album "Even the Sparrow" is slated for release in early summer 2018.
