About the Event
About the Artist: Baltimore native Billy Kemp is a songwriter and music maker. Now residing in middle Tennessee, he has recorded seven solo records and written over three hundred songs. Though his style is roots music, he has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, played on international rock tours, and composed music for Maryland Public Television. His concerts feature original songs and stories on guitar, banjo and piano.
"Billy Kemp, a gifted multi-instrumentalist with an impressive list of studio and road credentials frames these songs with austere and subtle acoustic arrangements built on various combinations of guitar, banjo, bass, mandolin and harmonica." Bob Allen, Bluegrass Unlimited, USA
About the Event: This is a special record-release concert to celebrate Billy’s new recording. Onions, Old Movies & You is not a blues record so much as it is a blues-infused record that took this roots musician back on a journey to where it all began: to the basements, garages and filling stations where he first heard the blues and honed his craft as a songwriter, singer and guitarist. They say all roads lead home - Billy was raised a few blocks from the Clubhouse!
Saturday, Jan 21 at 7:00pm. Tickets: $20.00
