Kevin Offord began his life in music at a young age taking recorder in Mr. Stencil’s grade 4/5 class at St. Peter’s school in Kingston. Shortly after that he began learning the great Highland Bagpipe. Later in his teen years he played trombone and tuba, and began singing in karaoke bars. Fast forward to now, he and Duane have been working together since 2017 and in that time have performed at the Grand Theatre, the Tir Nan Og, Robbie Burns night at the PWOR and are now regulars at the Riverhead Brewery in Kingston.
Duane Robar got into music as a young aspiring rock star in Halifax, NS, learning the ropes before jumping across the ocean where he was briefly “big in Japan”. Finding his way to Ontario and eventually Kingston, he began to connect with new musicians and friends. In addition to playing in his band Back Swing and occasional solo gigs, he and Kevin form the core of Kevin & the Kitchen Sink. Duane recently enrolled in a 12-step program for hopeless fans of 80s Pop.
Performing at MacKinnon Brothers Brewing Company: 2 - 5pm
Trevor Walsh was born in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Being a true Cape Bretoner, he has had music in his life since a very early age and it continues still.
Trevor is a veteran in the music industry with over 23 years of performing. His first stage appearance was at the age of 5 as a vocalist with three other band members.
Fast forward to today, Trevor still plays Celtic but has added to the song list, music by many great rock/folk artists and to complete the circle he plays many of their own original songs. He puts on a fantastic show and plays with all of his heart, soul and musical ability whether there are 4 people in the room or 4,000.
