KIRK McELHINNEY

‘Exciting and engaging…full of surprises.’

Kirk is a passionate singer whose soulful voice and insightful lyrics combine perfectly with his adept finger picking guitar style, creating a rich and vibrant sound that is both unique and enticing.  This is captured concisely on his debut album ‘World Gone Blind’.

His concerts are always a one-off, due to his free-spirited jamming style and raw energy which captivates audiences everywhere he performs.  Kirk has appeared alongside such luminaries as folk legend Bert Jansch, Tommy Emmanuel and Nitin Sawhney, who described Kirk’s sound as ‘a melting pot of sonic bliss.’ Kirk recently supported The Breath on tour and will perform this set alongside keyboardist John Ellis, adding another dimension from a super talented musician.
