Kenny performs acoustic and electric guitar as a solo or with a small band. He also plays harmonica and clawhammer banjo. His songwriting has been described as a soulful blend of early Van Morrison and Bob Dylan. Stephen Dubner of Freakonomics said "Kenny's songs can't be ignored". He occasionally introduces his songs with great stories about their origins. He has a lot of energy and people are often found smiling and having a good time when he's onstage.
