Kenny Watson
As "Professor Watson", Kenny's high energy, change of pace of music, instruments and characters keeps audiences of all ages on the edge of their seat, waiting for the next amazing musical accomplishment ranging from the classics, to Oscar winning movie themes like "Titanic" and film classics such as "Ghost."  Of course Kenny stays current with the high energy of the "Dave Mathews Band", "Stevie Wonder", and timeless hits by "Elvis", to name a few. And he always features the jazz styling of "Stephane Grappelli." To jazz, his first love in music, the nuances of the 5 string violin have added depth, character and color to Kenny's performances. The unique sounds he brings to his audiences have been applauded the world over.
