Touring in support of their new album, “Closer than You Know,” Maura and Pete Kennedy will headline a quadruple bill at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at Catherine Cummings Theater in Cazenovia.

Also performing at Saturday’s show in Cazenovia will be three more duos: Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman, Gary Frenay and Arty Lenin and Todd Hobin with Doug Moncrief.

“It’s going to be great,” Pete predicted during a telephone interview last week. “I know most of those guys, except for Todd, but Maura has known them forever. It’ll be like a class reunion. And I’m sure there will be jamming although we don’t have anything officially planned.”

Admission to Saturday’s SyrAcoustic concert costs $20. Tickets are available at Cazenovia Jewelry, the Sound Garden in Armory Square or via brownpapertickets.com; (800) 838-3006.

Musician-journalist memorialized

To celebrate the Daniel Pearl World Music Days, Live Space Entertainment and Cazenovia College will present a series of concerts this fall at the Catherine Cummings Theatre at Cazenovia College.

The Daniel Pearl Foundation celebrates the life of the slain Wall Street Journal reporter and mandolin player by utilizing the joy of live music to remind us all to embrace peace and understanding. In early-2002 Pearl was kidnapped and murdered in Pakistan while investigating the Al Qaeda terrorists.

The Pearl World Music Days begin here Saturday, Oct. 6, with a SyrAcoustic concert featuring four talented Central New York duos.

Appearing on Friday, Oct. 12 will be Professor Louie and the Crowmatix as well as the Gent Treadly Duo for a special tribute to Levon Helm, Rick Danko and the Music of The Band. The Syracuse-based Rock of Ages Horns featuring trumpeter Jeff Stockham will add to the excitement.

On Oct. 21, Grammy-winning acoustic blues guitarist John Hammond takes the stage on marking 50 years of performing. Syracuse Area Music Awards hall of famer Mark Hoffmann will open the show.

On Nov. 13, the Blues Project will be in the house featuring founder Danny Kalb and Steve Katz formerly of Blood, Sweat and Tears.

The next night, Nov. 14, the series continues to Poco, one of the most successful folk-rock bands from the 1970s and ’80’s, with Central New York’s own Dusty Pascal as special guest.
