Benji Kirkpatrick (ex Bellowhead) *
Benji was a member of recently disbanded folk trailblazers Bellowhead; is a third of the power folk trio Faustus; spent 3 years in Seth Lakeman’s band and has always performed as a solo artist. Benji deftly picks his way up and down the frets of the bouzouki, guitar, mandolin and banjo and with his 2015 release Hendrix Songs he tackles the songs of his hero, Jimi Hendrix, in stripped back, purely acoustic and thoroughly original style. His 2008 Navigator label release, Boomerang, showcased his unique song writing talents and he has worked alongside Maddy Prior and Oysterband to name but a few.
SUPPORT: Yas Yas Yas
This recently formed group consists of musical veterans Paul Riley, Andy and Nina Stevens and Jonathan Seath. They play largely ‘Hokum music’, a raunchy and earthy American blues music from the 1920s and 30s, accompanied with a variety of instruments.
