Kenny Duncan

From Summerfield, NC, Kenny Duncan was born on Feb 24, 1960. At the age of 3, Kenny saw a guitarist perform and was instantly mesmerized, knowing at that moment that he wanted to play. Kenny owned his first guitar at age 10 and played in church with his family, the Duncan Family, for 6 years.

Kenny was told at age 18 that Bluegrass Hall of Fame banjo player Bobby Atkins was hiring a guitar player. With confidence, he auditioned and got the job. The audition included Bobby’s daughter, Chelle, doing some vocals. Kenny met her that afternoon and as of Oct 11, 2023, they have been married for 43 years.

Kenny and Chelle formed their own band, Bodacious, playing the 2 stepping club circuit for a couple of years. They then went on to play for Billy Crash Craddock for a few years and came to Myrtle Beach in ‘94 on a venture, moving the family down and staying here.

By ‘97, Kenny started working at Legends in Concert as a guitarist for 14 seasons, and Music Director for the last 3. Kenny is in his 11th season now at Alabama Theatre and eagerly looking forward to starting at the Greg Rowles Legacy Theater.

Kenny is a thankful husband, father of 3, and grandfather of 6 – a very blessed man.
