Generally speaking, singer-songwriter nights at area clubs can be painful. Droning hacks abound. Eardrums assaulted. Abort! Abort!
But I can say with confidence that listeners are in for a treat tonight at The Grotto — Guthrie Kennard, James Michael Taylor, and Chris Johnson are among the scheduled performers at the Jody Jones Monday Night residency.
The new TV show Troubadour Texas has given Kennard plenty of screen time and discovered what Fort Worth Weekly knew long ago — Kennard oozes bluesy soul and sings with gut-bucket authenticity.
