Kemp Harris on piano, Adam Osgood on Harmonica

“Kemp Harris is a composer, musician, author, actor, and teacher. Born in North Carolina, he taught himself piano and was writing songs at age 14. His album, entitled Edenton, looks back to his roots and features the backing vocals of the Holmes Brothers. Kemp has shared the stage with Taj Mahal, Gil Scott-Heron, and Koko Taylor. He has written and performed original compositions in the U.S. and Europe for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and WGBH public television.  

Adam Osgood is a harp player and spoken word artist who draws his influences from Blues tradition and Beat Poetry. He is comfortable in genres ranging from Folk to Funk and has been a front, side and hype man collaborator of Kemp Harris for over thirty-five years.”

“Harris is a thief, a tease, and a heart breaker. He knows too much and it’s all right there when he sings. Beautifully there. He will steal your breath away.”
