Yeah, they're really a pretty down-to-earth music duo. Founded in 2016, they've played in PA, CT, MA, NH, and ME, with VT on the way. Individually, David Rose and Dan Kennedy are both award winning musicians who have played all over the country.

Whisperings pianist DAN KENNEDY has performed in 21 states across the country, and Canada.
