Acoustic Showcase - Lexington, MA
"Kevin is an excellent singer songwriter with a pleasant voice, satixfying guitar work (both picking and strumming, alternate and standard tuning), and has a great song selection. His music is both quiet and strong conveyed with feeling and conviction. We particularly enjoyed is original ;That's my child' and his moving rendition of 'The Water is Wide'.
