Billy Kemp Trades 8th Nov

Our guest at Barnsley Folk Club on Wednesday 8th November at the Trades Racecommon Road Barnsley is our old friend Billy Kemp who is now doing his first solo tour of the UK.

From the Land of Pleasant Living, Baltimore native Billy Kemp is a musician, songwriter, singer, composer and producer. He is a multi-instrumentalist but is best known for his tasteful and inventive guitar playing.

From 2005 through 2016 Billy was half of the Appalachian Folk duo Jeni and Billy, who toured extensively in the US, Canada and the U.K. and released seven CDs and were regular and highly popular guests at Barnsley Folk Club for the last seven years.

Billy has released a new solo CD this summer. His concert will include songs from his new CD, as well as audience favourites from the Jeni & Billy repertoire and selections from a rich and extensive back-catalogue.
