NEWTON, MA (Aug. 6, 2012) - Closing out a busy summer schedule that included appearances throughout New England, Billy "The Kid" Claiborne is now booking gigs for fall and winter performances. Claiborne, a local singer songwriter, has developed a strong fan base and following with numerous return engagements from satisfied club owners.

"Billy is a regular here and never fails to get a good response from the crowd," said Wesley Beaumont, Assistant General Manager of the Union Street Restaurant in Newton Centre. "He's been playing here for nearly a year now and we love having him."

Claiborne has received critical praise from fellow musicians and reviewers. Following the release late last year of Claiborne's first CD, Live on Union Street, musician Timothy Underberry said Claiborne is: "impressive and versatile with a great range and voice and devotion to it all.

After fronting for various bands throughout New England (The Bailey Brothers Band, Southbound, The Subheds, the NutGrafs), Billy “The Kid”Claiborne has decided to go it alone.
Appearing solo, and sometimes backed with The Clanton Gang, or his buddy Wyatt, Billy draws on his country roots combining them with ample doses of folk, rock, and pop, Billy has designed a set list and show that spans styles and generations. “I play the songs that are meaningful to me in the hopes that I’m not all that different than the folks who come see me and that will be meaningful to them.”
Utilizing a range of instruments, tuning and styles (Takamine six string and 12-string, acoustics, Epiphone EJ-160E, Fender acoustic-electric bass and Telecaster; Gibson ES-335, Hohner harmonicas, a stomp box and a few effects), Billy’s show offers diverse elements and excitement, taking his audience on a ride through the generations of popular music, and singer-songwriter styles.
