Out Now: The audio version of Pete's debut novel Floodwood!
This fast-moving narrative of global adventure mixes mystery, myth and a monster. The brand new audio version is read by Pete and features original soundtrack music composed and played by him! The crime fighting tale of Alistair Wulver and intrepid crossbow-toting heroine Artemis Fletcher comes alive with Pete's narration and newly-penned music.
On the heels of his successful memoir, Pete’s debut novel, Floodwood, is a hybrid of mystery and fantasy.
There’s something rotten at New York’s prestigious Strabo Society, and a werewolf is on the loose in sedate Westchester County. Improbably assisted by an intrepid female professor-turned-secret-agent named Artemis Fletcher, the werewolf’s mission is anything but expected, spanning the globe from the Adirondacks to the Himalayas and ancient temples of Japan. This unforgettable mystery novel combines classical and folk mythology, esoteric tropes and a touch of horror that recalls Edgar Allen Poe and Mary Shelley.

Pete Kennedy - Electric Sitar Meditations
"Electric Sitar Meditations" out NOW, both on CD and as digital downloads!
Sandalwood incense wafts from the next room. “Electric Sitar Meditations” by Pete Kennedy is playing. The drone of his sitar is calming, but at the same time it triggers a heightened sensual awareness. Kennedy's solid reputation as a folk-rock sideman was cemented long ago through his work with Nanci Griffith, Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Kate Wolf and most notably his wife and duo partner Maura Kennedy. He's also released a string of guitar-centric albums in the roots/Americana genre.
With "Electric Sitar Meditations" he takes a bold step in a new direction, offering a set of jazz classics from the late fifties "modal" period associated with Miles and Coltrane, balanced against a virtual "side two" of his own improvisations on classical themes by Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky and Bartok. The electric sitar, which he plays solo throughout with no overdubs or edits, is an evocative, surprisingly sonorous instrument that has long deserved a rehab from its hippie-era gimmick status. Kennedy quietly reinvents the instrument as an "ancient but fresh" sound that will intrigue jazz, classical and new age listeners.
