Maddy & Kev
6:00pm / James Ranch Grill
Maddy and Kev is a singer/songwriter duo from Mancos, Colorado. As individuals, they have always had a love for music and together they collaborate to offer harmony with their voices and instruments alike. When Kevin's blues-soaked background and childhood of listening to the classic sounds of Willie and Waylon meets Maddy's love for soulful sounds of jazz, country and folk, their music delivers a sweet and savory cuisine you must taste for yourself. The group recently recorded their debut album in Woodstock, New York and their music is available on all streaming platforms.
