Benji Kirkpatrick

Summary


Hailing from the wild hills of Shropshire, Benji is the progeny of two reknowned and prolific musicians (and parents). His first experience of recording was on his fathers 1994 album Earthling, then in 1995 he led his band The Hedgerows into the path of Mrs. Caseys Music who asked him to contribute a track (Robin Hood - The Tolling Bell) to their first Evolving Tradition album, released to great national acclaim.

The Hedgerows enjoyed the next few years regularly gigging, first as a five-piece, then as a duo - their most notable performances being at the Barbican Centre (the launch for Evolving Tradition), Mid-Wales Festival, Towersey Village Festival, Sidmouth Festival and as support for Altan, The Oysterband, The John Kirkpatrick Band, Craobh Rua, The Dharmas, etc. etc. . .

Benji now performs as a soloist, as well as with The John Kirkpatrick Band.

2006 - Benji now also performs with Bellowhead and Faustus.
