52 years ago in the first summer of love, 1967, a little known act, named Big Brother and the Holding Company, with their ferocious singer, Janis Joplin, took to the stage of what is considered to be the first rock festival, Monterey Pop Festival. This performance astounded crowds and industry folk alike and has gone down in history as one of those magical moments.
Fast forward to 2019 (the 50th anniversary of the second Summer of Love), history is set to repeat one of those ‘had to be there’ moments! Having been taken under the wing of guitar maestro, Myke Gray, Kim Jennett will take to the hallowed grounds of Donnington this June to perform along with Myke, expect to see every jaw dropped and every hand in the air.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0LRQTMRh_U&w=560&h=315]
The pair started working together in the summer of 2018 and their flourishing partnership looks set for a strong and rewarding endeavour together. Whilst Kim initially started off singing for Myke, he now plays guitar for her in return, such was Mykes enthralment and ore of Kims ability to sing and perform, he wrote her third single especially. Kim’s vocal talents are a formidable force of power and conviction, I dare you to not be astounded!
Already, Kim has supported Black Star Riders, nailed slots at Hard Rock Hell and Winters End Festival, next slots include KK’s Steel Mill then onto Download.
