The Kennedy Suite
The Kennedy Suite is a song cycle, album and stage show of JFK-inspired songs by Scott Garbe, performed by Canadian artists and arranged by Cowboy Junkies.
Where were you when JFK was killed?
The Kennedy Suite tells the story of the JFK assassination through characters both historical and fictional who relate their experience of the tragedy in a series of intensely personal narratives.
The collaboration combines the original work of Toronto composer and lyricist Scott Garbe as arranged and produced by Cowboy Junkies - one of Canada's most enduring and innovative recording artists.
The stage performance was created and designed by Benedict Hilliard (associate designer for Les Miserables, Miss Saigon). Stephen Pollard (Lighting Designer for U2, Adele, Simple Minds) and Geoff Burpee.
The stage show featured live performances by the more than a dozen Canadian acts who appear on the TKS album, including Cowboy Junkies, Skydiggers, Jessy Bell Smith, The Good Family, Lee Harvey Osmond, Harlan Pepper, Reid Jamieson, Ivy Mairi, Sarah Harmer, Jason Collett, The Screwed and The Potion Kings.
