Guitarist Donald Kinsey

Donald’s played guitar for blues legend Albert King; reggae greats Bob Marley and Peter Tosh and The Kinsey Report.  He can be heard playing around Grand Rapids regularly with his own band.

He’s had an incredible career in music playing with legends like Albert King, Bob Marley, and Peter Tosh! Donald and I chat about the first time his father and blues musician, “Big Daddy” Kinsey gave him a guitar, joining up to play and tour with the legendary blues guitarist, Albert King when he was just a teenager, how he crossed paths with Bob Marley and Peter Tosh to end up in the center of the Reggae universe, about what it was like to be in same room with Bob Marley when assassins opened fire, the volatility of Jamaica during the 70′s, playing with his brothers in The Kinsey Report, touring with the Rolling Stones, why he chose to set down roots here in Grand Rapids, the soon to be released Bob Marley documentary that he’s part of, his band he performs with around Grand Rapids, and his passion for helping young musicians.
