Geoff Kennedy
Apr 1 @ 8:00 pm

Born in Halifax Nova Scotia, Geoff started off young as a musician. By the age of 8 he was beginning guitar lessons, but it wasn’t until middle school when he began to evolve into a songwriter. Dabbling in numerous bands, it was difficult to find a fit that suited. To truly begin finding his voice, Geoff began honing his skills on the streets, performing as a street busker for the downtown crowd on weekends.

Over 13 years of busking experience goes a long way, and with a keen eye for what a crowd will respond to, and a strong, attention catching voice.
