Presented by the Cultural Center of Cape Cod on Saturday, August 12, at 7:30pm. Kemp Harris defies categorization. He is a singer and songwriter, a master weaver of American musical styles. He’s also an actor, activist, author, storyteller, and award-winning educator who has taught young students for more than 40 years. Kemp has acted in numerous films and TV shows such as SMILF (Showtime) and is comfortable sharing the stage with artists such as Taj Mahal, Koko Taylor, and Gil Scott-Heron, as well as performing shows with his smokin' band. He wrote and performed “If Loneliness Was Black” for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Complexions Dance Company. Kemp has also composed for WGBH Public Television/Boston. Kemp's powers of observation and 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, Kemp says, “I’m an old black man telling stories and spreading the love.” “Kemp writes with honesty and heart. The stories and situations in his songs touch us all and makes us think. As the performance on his latest CD shows, he creates an experience for the audience that is personal and moving.”- Ron Olesko, WFDU. $25.
