Ken Theriot is a singer/songwriter and has been performing his brand of pop-folk for about 20 years. He has released five CDs with Raven Boy Music, including “Human History,” which contains the songs “Agincourt” and “Band of Brothers,” which have become standards in the medieval re-creation group, The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA).
The CD consists mainly of songs that view famous historical (usually medieval or older) events from the point of view of a single character who was there. The result is a series of songs that make make you think, laugh, cry while enjoying the excellent folk-pop music that brings the songs to life.
in 2012, he recorded the Christmas album “The Gifts of Midwinter,” which was a joint project with Lisa Theriot.
In March, 2014 Ken released his most recent album, “Outlaws and Bystanders,” focuses on – well – outlaws from history and legend along with lesser-known characters who nevertheless, played vital roles while being relegated to the sidelines. The most popular song from that album so far is “William Tell.”
Currently, Ken and Lisa Theriot are working on an album based on the stories in “A Thousand Nights and Night,” scheduled for a 2020 release.

The album “Everything That Matters” has fallen through the cracks on iTunes. I’m told it was an administrative error that cannot be fixed. Sigh. But the digital album is still available on Amazon if you CLICK HERE.
