The quality of Kirk McElhinney’s songwriting, his voice and guitar playing is recognised by any who come across his work.
His sound once described by Nitin Sawney as “a melting pot of sonic bliss”, Kirk himself calls urban folk. His songs and his delivery have an uncanny ability to capture people’s hearts and move minds and bodies.
On the road promoting his new album “You Are Not Your Past” on Manchester WorldFolk label Limefield, he is joined by 2 artists in their own right.
Andy Hay on drums recently released his second album after the acclaimed “Many Rivers” made its mark on the British music scene and long time collaborator John Ellis has worked with The Cinematic Orchestra, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lily Allen, Tom Jones and too many more to mention.
All three blend together vocally and musically with real fire and soul.
Kirk is a national treasure with a universal aim. To see him with the trio is to see him truly in his element and not to be missed.
Support comes from John Haycock.
