We have a real treat in store for you today in the form of a new FRUK Session from Mo Kenney. It was filmed by the good folks at BaylisGray whose fine film-work we have been featuring a lot of over the past year. This one was filmed in Cornwall whilst Mo was touring with Rachel Sermanni.
Mo Kenney may not be a name you are all familiar with in the UK yet but in her native Canada (Nova Scotia) she is something of gem, a reputation that is sure to follow here. For the session she performed ‘Sucker’ from her forthcoming debut single (out on Monday 31st March) which is also our Song of the Day.
Mo Kenney has played the prestigious Iceland Airwaves, The Great Escape and Green Man Festival in the UK; won the 2013 SOCAN Songwriting Prize; a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year; and three Music Nova Scotia awards for Pop Recording, New Artist Recording, and Female Artist Recording of the Year.
I can promise you that her name is one you will be hearing a lot more of very soon. She releases her self titled debut album on Monday 7th April.
