Kemp Harris

  • Orange Door Kitchen 251 Arlington Street Acton, MA, 01720 United States (map)

Kemp is a storyteller, composer, musician, children’s author, and actor. As a musician and composer, Kemp has shared the stage with Taj Mahal, Gil Scott-Heron, and Koko Taylor. He has written and performed original compositions for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and WGBH public television, and now enjoys making music with his band, “The Kemp Harris Group.” His music has been described as “a thoughtful tapestry exploring the intersection of American roots music, jazz, and African folk influences.” He has recently been cast in Netflix’s “SMILF.” (Yep, a truly Renaissance man!) But, perhaps most important, he was a 30-plus-year educator of kindergartners and first-graders in Newton.
