Here are some reviews which convey Kev’s formidable professional standing:
Simon Nicol
"Kev plays the kind of things the rest of us dream about"

Martin Carthy
"A beautiful guitarist"
John Kirkpatrick
"Kevin Dempsey is a master of tricky rhythms and effortlessly complicated guitar parts and spreads a wonderfully dignified calm through the turbulent and muddied waters of my outpourings.
Kevin Ward
"His voice so memorable from Whippersnapper and his recent duo recordings, always so traditionally English to my ears"

Peter Knight
"When Kevin is playing his guitar and singing and I am accompanying him on my violin, I often want to stop and listen. He sings and plays from all the right places within and his inspiring musical performances can always be trusted. His notes are true and his intention and motivation for making music is all about the music and not about the man. My only regret is that we don't play together more frequently"

Colin Irwin
"One of the UK's most admired and charismatic guitarists"

Joe Broughton
"The best guitarist on the planet"
