This week on Art of the Song we talk with Kemp Harris. This Boston-based and beloved artist is one of the voices we need right now. Defying categorization Kemp is a singer and songwriter, a master weaver of American musical styles. He’s an actor, activist, author, and storyteller, and an award-winning educator who has taught young public school students for more than 40 years. A Renaissance man with a wave of new fans discovering his creative perspective, Kemp honed his powerful, intimate performance style in Cambridge Massachusetts coffeehouses. He’s shared stages with artists such as Koko Taylor, Gil Scott-Heron, and Taj Mahal.
