Kenn Lending Blues Band was formed in November 1980, by the Danish singer and guitarist Kenn Lending. Kenn had already been very active, in several reputable Danish groups, since 1973.
But forming his own blues band, fulfilled a dream, that he had, since he saw T Bone Walker live on stage in 1968. Already a year before Kenn Lending formed his band, he started his well known partnership with the legendary American blues pianist and -singer Champion Jack Dupree, who lived in Hannover, Germany. This partnership, that through the years turned into a very close friendship, lasted until “The Champ” past away in January 1992.
The Duo did over 1000 concerts together in 35 states and countries, including a seven week tour in USA and Canada in 1991. They also appear together on at least 19 different albums.
Three of the albums was recorded in New Orleans, for Rounder Records in 1990 and 1991, in connection with their performances on 'New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival'. One of these albums 'Forever and Ever', received the WC Handy Award for the best traditional album in 1991.
