Terry Kitchen

Contemporary folk singer-songwriter Terry Kitchen combines craft and inspiration into a wonderfully entertaining and enlightening performance. His wide-ranging original songs (from "Bang Your Head Against the Sky," about the Wright Brothers, to "The Bonny Lights of Cavendish," about English orphans sent to Canada, to "The Seven Eleven Overture" about small town life) are given life by his powerful but intimate voice, supple guitar playing and offbeat, gentle humor. His songs have won the Mid Atlantic Song Contest and USA Songwriting Songwriting Competition and been runner-up in the John Lennon song contest. His ten CDs include 'The Quiet Places,' The Post-American-Century,' 'Summer to Snowflakes,' 'Heaven Here On Earth,' 'That's How It Used to Be,' 'Right Now,' 'Blues for Cain & Abel,' 'Blanket' and 'I Own This Town.' His debut novel Next Big Thing was published in 2013. 'One of New England's finest songwriters'-The Boston Globe.

Kitchen also leads songwriting workshops, often in conjunction with performances.

    "Terry Kitchens is one of New England's best singer songwriters and he did not disappoint during his performance at Amazing Things. His set was thoughtful, poignant, and real. The audience loved his songs and playful banter, and you can tell he has mastered both parts of the craft."--Dan Cloutier
