I have recently found a concert with Harrison Kennedy on the CBC Concerts on Demand site. Harrison Kennedy plays mandolin, guitar, banjo, harmonica and he sings.
During the 60s Harrison was a member of The Chairman of the Board and he was very successful:
In 1968 the Detroit POP GROUP “The Chairmen of the Board.” played all the top venues including JOHNNY CARSON’S TONIGHT SHOW, SOUL TRAIN and AMERICAN BANDSTAND and ENGLAND’S “TOP-OF-THE-POPS’, doing our hit, “Gimme Me Just A Little More Time.” C.O.T.B. had performances with B.B. KING, JAMES BROWN, SMOKEY ROBINSON, STEVIE WONDER, FUNKADELICS and more. C.O.T.B. also performed many times at NewYorks Famous HARLEM’S APOLLO THEATRE.
During the last years Harrison Kennedy has mainly sticked to the blues and he has recorde three CDs.
In the beginning Harrison used mainly the guitar or slide guitar to accompany himself, but recently he has discovered the mandolin, banjo and octave mandolin.
The CBC concert can be found on the following page:
