Porch Session: Kemp Harris


Kemp Harris is an artist that defies categorization. Born in segregated North Carolina, he moved to the Boston area for school and a long career as an artist and public school teacher. Kemp is a highly skilled singer-songwriter, a master weaver of American musical styles. He’s also an actor, activist, author, and storyteller, and a beloved, award-winning educator who taught elementary public school students for more than 40 years.
Kemp’s powers of observation, his unique gift for shining a light on our modern world and what it means to be alive in these times, have only deepened over a lifetime devoted to the most basic and profound of pursuits, genuine human connection. Whether he’s in the classroom, on a film set, leading a workshop, or performing on the concert stage, at the end of the day, Kemp says, “I’m an old black man telling stories and spreading the love.” http://kempharris.band/
