The Kennedy Suite

The Kennedy Suite is a rock opera, song cycle, post-modern musical that tells the story of the JFK assassination through the fragmented narratives of a series of characters, each of whom experiences the tragedy from their own intensely personal perspective. The recording is a collaboration that combines the original work of Toronto composer and lyricist Scott Garbe as arranged, recorded and produced by Cowboy Junkies along with Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson of Skydiggers. Included on the album are performances by more than a dozen top Canadian artists including Sarah Harmer, Hawksley Workman, Jason Collett, Doug Paisley, Lee Harvey Osmond, The Good Family, Harlan Pepper, Jessy Bell Smith, Reid Jamieson, The Screwed, Martin Tielli, The Potion Kings, Ivy Mairi and more.
