John Kirkpatrick is a superb singer, great writer, fine dancer & the best English squeezer bar none. He is one of the great solo acts on the folk scene & has played with the Albions, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, Band of Hope & many more.
Many of John's own tunes have passed into the common repertoire: Jump At The Sun, Nipper, Pepper in the Brandy, As The Sun Was Setting & many more. In the workshop John will take you through a selection from his recently-published collection Jump At The Sun (Quarry House Publishing, info@quarry-house.co.uk), explore ways of making them sparkle & possibly discuss where & how he finds his inspiration.
