KENNY KITCHING
...
Kenny is a Legendary Australian Steel Guitarist who enjoys an International reputation. Kenny has been playing for half a century both at home here in Australia and also overseas.
Kenny has performed at the Internation Steel Guitar Convention in St.Louis (USA) and on his first trip in 1977, he recorded an Album for Midland Records Titled ' Sydney to Nashvile".
In the 1950s Kenny was asked if he thought he could play Country and Western Music on his Steel Guitar. Kenny said he didn't know but that he would give it a go, and the rest is history as they say. By the age of 16 years Kenny had built his own six stringed guitar, with a solid body and he still plays his fifth Kitchings built guitar, which is a double necked, 8 and 10 stringed lap steel, as well as a Perina Double 10 Pedal Steel Guitar with a clip on Anapeg lap Steel.
Speedy West was the first to introduce Kenny to the Pedal Steel during his 1960s visit to Australia. In the mid 60s Kenny turned his attention to the Dobro (resonator) Guitar. Kenny was later told by John Minson, commonly known as Mr Hoedown, that his Dobro playing was world class.
...
In St Louis, 2001 Kenny received the JerryByrd Lifetime Achievement Award. This award reads: "For your continuing effort in bringing Steel Guitar into prominence throughout Australia. Your musical artistry has earned you the respect and admiration of both players and fans alike." So as you can see Kenny has had a long and big career, and big Steelers have admired Kenny Kitching.
