Freddy Kempf on CD
This webpage was started in 1999 to help give Freddy Kempf's playing a larger audience.
His playing has done that!  Please see his official page with IMG Artists for Current News!
  (Updated May 2017 tho' this page needs serious updating in general)

This page remains here for news through 2004 to give background for those attending his concerts
and will have special updates from time to time, so keep a bookmark to check for those.
    For example, see links below to his blog for a website in Asia, a fun read.
