ABOUT THE SHOW AND THE ARTISTS:

My name is Billy Kemp, and Im a musician. Ive been playing guitar for forty-five years and also play the banjo, bass, harmonica, piano and anything you can get a sound out of. I live in Nashville, Tennessee where I have hung my hat infrequently since I spend so much of my time on the road. I average five or six tours annually, which take me all over the United States, Canada, and the British Isles. I like hearing the ways people talk,especially their different accents. And then there are all of the stories.

Playing music is on the schedule every day unless Im driving on the highways, riding on the rails, or flying in the air and even then, Im making things on my tablet. I also religiously follow an instruction that was given to me by the great jazz and flamenco guitarist Charlie Byrd. He told me: "Practice your scales every day. I still do."

Making things out of music is what I like to do - I'm fascinated by the life-cycle of songs; which are first written, then recorded, and finally shared with an audience, at which point a whole new journey begins...

After many wonderful years of writing, recording and performing with the Appalachian Folk duo,Jeni & Billy, I am excited and curious to see where the next bend in the musical highway will lead.
