Billy Kemp returns to the Faulkner County Library on April 3 at 7:00 PM. Billy is song and music maker, with a leaning towards roots music. The Baltimore native and Nashville resident has recorded five solo records and written over two hundred songs. He has performed at the Grand Ole Opry, played loud electric guitar on international rock tours and composed music for Maryland Public Television. His concerts feature original songs and stories on guitar, banjo and piano. His latest January 2018 release Another Life includes seven reminiscences from the neighborhood of Paradise in west Baltimore where Billy grew up and four heart songs. Quotes on Another Life: “richly evocative, teeming with character, humor and heart” Folk Works, “heartbreaking, honest, minimal” Ear To The Ground.
