Announcing ‘Broken Before’, an elegant and sophisticated record, and the best in Kempston’s considerable oeuvre to date. This is songwriting at its very best, elegiac and poetic images of well-drawn characters telling timeless, resonant stories allied with Kempston’s distinctive, virtuosic acoustic guitar work and augmented with the cream of Scottish folk music talent.
