Following the October 2007 release of his debut CD Moscow Madness, Sean Kemp was quickly nominated for an East Coast Music Award in February 2008 for best instrumental album. A tour of Maritime venues and a few dates in Ontario took place in the fall of 2007 and now preparations are underway for more touring in 2008.

Check back to see updated tour dates for the Sean Kemp Band and Sean with other performers. Sean will backup Anne Murray during the Maritime leg of her tour in April. He'll also be rejoining Lennie Gallant this summer for a few performances. Sean Kemp has been the principal violinist for multiple East Coast Music Award Winner and Juno Nominee, Lennie Gallant for more than four years.

This highly regarded violinist has been featured on numerous albums including 2007 Juno Award Nominated "When we get there" by Lennie Gallant and 2006 Juno Award nominated "Boy-Cott-in-the-Industry" by Classified. Sean has performed at most of the major music festivals in North America. Most recently he appeared at the Stewart Park Festival near Ottawa and has performed to standing ovations at the Mariposa Folk Festival and Caterbury Folk Festival in Ontario and the Dead of Winter Festival in Halifax.

Influenced by styles and genres from around the world his music is extremely evocative with a sense of infinite space and profound intimacy. His playing and music have won critical acclaim.

Originally from London, England, Sean took up permanent residence in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2002. He started playing the violin at the age of six and went on to receive his musical training at the Royal College of Music in the UK. He later studied acting at the "State Institute of Cinematography", Moscow, Russia.
