Whatever became of… Nigel Kennedy?main
Things have gone very quiet on the Kennedy front since he parted company with his manager last summer.
Kennedy, 58, went on to sign with Lang Lang’s US agency CAMI Music, but appears to have got lost in transition. He does not appear on their front page of favoured artists and has not regained his footing on the US circuit.
He has also fallen out, we hear, with members of his Polish band. His classical bridges have fallen, one by one.
(Which may be why things have gone so quiet.)
The news this morning is that he has set up a small Jimi Hendrix UK tour with a new, small band: 13 September Cambridge Corn Exchange; 14 September Oxford New Theatre; 16 September London Royal Festival Hall.
