About Me
Norm Ballinger is a poet, carpenter, strawbale home builder, sculptor of trash magic, but most of all he is a guitar slinger. From his early days as a soloist playing delta blues and ragtime finger picking to accompanying songwriters such as George Ensle, Eric Taylor, and Jerry Stevens, Norm has explored a wide variety of musical styles. Though coming from a folk/rock/blues background, Norm’s songwriting transcends genre. Every song opens to another place of wonder. As a seasoned guitarist, he can play a wide variety of cover songs and instrumentals. As a performer/songwriter/composer he can masterfully lead a band through all levels of wow at restaurants, bars, concerts, and festivals.

With his third CD release, Where The Heart Lingers, Norm proves himself as a seasoned songwriter and instrumentalist. His new band, featuring percussionist Jorge de Armas, and Kurt Huffman on fretless bass, has been filling rooms since their first show. The band is a fine complement to the variety in Norm’s songs from soulful waltz to gypsy jazz to rockin’ jams. Think Bruce Cockburn, or how about Dave Matthews Band meets Jethro Tull with Leo Kottke sitting in.

Dragon of Summer

early July '13

The Dragon of summer afternoon waits

hiding in the morning dew

and the treasures

of these hours which so quickly disappear

I muster my kit and get ready

for the slow crawl

Billy Kemp seeking UK House Concert Dates for May 2019

Hey UK Friends, Billy Kemp here. I am planning a new tour of the UK for May of 2019.

I live near Nashville, Tennessee where I have hung my hat infrequently, since I spend so much of my time on the road. I average five or six tours annually, which take me all over the United…See More

Notes from my Acoustic/Folk kitchen table part 1...

I'm sat at my kitchen table in the Wilds of Winchester it's 5.30 am and the dawn chorus has just begun outside my window...This time of morning is perfect for creativity, songwriting and peace. Knowing that people are tucked up in their beds dreaming dreams and all you can hear outside the occasional call of a barn owl is warming to the heart and soul.When I first moved here from Southampton I found the silence deafening, now it is comfort and solace. The countryside and woods have provided…See More
