Don Conoscenti (The Kennedy Center)

Don Conoscenti

Vocalist and acoustic guitarist Don Conoscenti left his home in Chicago when he was seventeen and traveled by thumb, truck, motorcycle and freight train around the United States. (One sideline was scooping home-made ice cream at a shop in Vermont run by two guys named Ben and Jerry.) While living in a van on MarthaÆs Vineyard and playing guitar in a soul act, Conoscenti formed a band with Boston musicians Rick Iannuzzi and Reeves Gabrels. After some false starts, Conoscenti moved to Key West, while Gabrels went to London and became David BowieÆs right-hand guitar man. Conoscenti is an organic multi-instrumental mix of stories and songs about lovers, outcasts, healing, and redemption.
